Colts Cut Former Gamecock Saunders

(WOLO) — Less than a week after the NFL suspended him for 8 games this upcoming season after his second violation of the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, former Gamecock Weslye Saunders is now looking for a new NFL team. Wednesday, the Indianapolis Colts cut Saunders. The tight end started four games in the 2012 season and caught two passes for 15 yards. Saunders said his first violation of the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances came because he took adderall. He said that led to Pittsburgh releasing him as a rookie. “When you hear performance-enhancing drugs, automatically you kind of think of some guy in the corner shooting up whatever into his veins,” he said then. “It was nothing like that. A one-time thing. I learned from it and am ready to roll now.” Saunders sat out his final season at USC after breaking NCAA rules by accepting a discounted rate to live at the Whitney Hotel.
