Rookie safety John Boyett was waived Tuesday from the Colts’ non-football injury list. Boyett was arrested early Monday morning on charges of disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting law enforcement.
The 5-foot-10, 203-pound defensive back was a sixth-round draft pick by Indianapolis in April.
“As you know, we released John Boyett. I’m not going to get into the details. Every situation is different and we’ll handle each of them accordingly,” Pagano said.
Undrafted outside linebacker Caesar Rayford was traded to Dallas Tuesday in exchange for an unspecified conditional draft pick in 2015.
The 27-year old Rayford had been signed in May after stints in the Canadian and Arena Football Leagues. He had become a fan favorite after posting five sacks in the Colts’ four pre-season games and had made the regular season roster with his performance.
