Linebacker Shaquille Leonard has been released by the Indianapolis Colts. Colts owner Jim Irsay expressed gratitude for Leonard’s contributions to the team during his six years with the organization. In response, Leonard posted a heartfelt farewell message on social media, thanking the city of Indianapolis and its fans for their support.
Throughout his time with the Colts, Leonard had several notable achievements. He was selected in the second round of the 2018 draft and was named defensive rookie of the year. Additionally, he earned first-team All-Pro honors in 2019. However, back injuries and a decrease in playing time ultimately led to his release from the team.
Despite leaving the Colts, Leonard remains grateful for the love and support he received from fans in Indianapolis. As a free agent, he now has the opportunity to sign with a new team and continue his professional football career.
