The Indianapolis Colts signed longtime NFL safety Andrew Sendejo on Tuesday.

The Colts also waived cornerback Chris Wilcox and released safety Sean Davis from their practice squad.

Sendejo, 34, has played in parts of the past 11 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys (2010), Minnesota Vikings (2011-19), Philadelphia Eagles (2019) and Cleveland Browns (2020).

Undrafted out of Rice, Sendejo found a home with the Vikings and eventually became a starter for them at both free safety and strong safety. Over the course of 99 games (60 starts) with Minnesota, he grabbed eight of his nine career interceptions, recovered three fumbles and tallied 370 tackles.

He signed a one-year contract with the Browns last season and started 14 games for them, but was not brought back in 2021.

Wilcox was a seventh-round draft pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in April and failed to make their initial 53-man roster. The Colts signed him off waivers Sept. 1, but the BYU product did not play in Week 1's home loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Davis was elevated from the practice squad to play in Week 1 for Indianapolis. He spent his first five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, making 42 starts and recording five picks.
