The Colts signed cornerback Clay Fields III and wide receiver Derek Slywka on Thursday, the team announced. Both are undrafted free agents.

To make room for the signings, the Colts placed safety Daniel Scott on injured reserve and waived center Jack Anderson.

He went undrafted after seeing action in 34 career games as a defensive back at Ithaca College, where he compiled 119 tackles, seven tackles for loss, 30 passes defensed, 11 interceptions, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and four blocked kicks.

Scott spent the entire 2023 season on the team’s injured reserve list. He was selected by the Colts in the fifth round of the 2023 draft after appearing in 49 career games with 28 starts at California.
