Wesley Saunders' eight-game suspension certainly do him any favors with his employer, the Indianapolis Colts.

Saunders was waived by the Colts just days after being suspended for eight games for violating the league's performance enhancing drug policy.

To take his place on the roster, the Colts signed linebacker Daniel Adongo, who isn't just any linebacker. He is a former Kenyan rugby player.

“We are excited as an organization with the acquisition of Daniel Adongo,” said General Manager Ryan Grigson. “He is not only an elite athlete and rising international rugby player, but he is an exceptional competitor and human being that has the right makeup for our sport. We all look forward to watching his growth and development in the ensuing weeks.”
