The Indianapolis Colts signed Daniel Adongo to a one-year contract under the impression that the Kenyan rugby star could develop into a productive NFL rush linebacker.

Four months in the experiment, the Colts have decided to add Adongo to their 53-man roster.

The Colts made the move Tuesday, adding Adongo and offensive lineman Xavier Nixon from the team’s practice squad. Indy made room by placing linebacker Mario Harvey and running back Dan Herron on injured reserve.

Adongo represents a great curiosity — a 23-year-old graced with tremendous size, speed and strength, but with a complete absence of American football background. The Colts landed Adongo after a rugby agent, based in Hong Kong, reached out to the organization about having interest in one of his clients.

Don’t expect Adongo to be an immediate impact player on Indianapolis’ defense. Still, Tuesday counted as more progress in the intriguing linebacker’s development.-nfl.com
