Colts add three via waivers
By Paul Kuharsky
The Colts picked a favorite player at three spots of need off the waiver wire, adding former Patriots safety Sergio Brown, former 49ers offensive tackle Mike Person, and former Jets defensive tackle Martin Tevaseu.
To create room for the waiver claims, Indianapolis cut safety Jermale Hines, cornerback DJ Johnson and offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe.
Brown has appeared in 26 games (three starts) and has totaled 34 tackles (25 solo) and one interception. Last season, he played in 15 games with three starts and made 26 tackles (18 solo) and one interception. He played collegiately at Notre Dame.
Person (6-foot-4, 299 pounds) was originally selected in the seventh round (239th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. Last year, he was inactive for all 16 regular season and two preseason games.
Tevaseu (6-2, 325 pounds) bounced between the Jets' practice squad and roster last season, seeing action in five games and totaling three tackles.
The Colts still have the No. 1 slot in the waiver claiming order and could continue to grab people as the rest of the league makes moves.
