After being drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in 2015 and failing to make the roster in 2016, former UB Football defensive lineman Kristjan Sokoli has been signed to the Indianapolis Colts practice squad.

Sokoli somewhat famously flipped to the offensive side of the ball in Seattle, where the Seahawks hoped to find a gem in his athleticism. But Kristjan only appeared on a single game for Seattle, didn’t progress as quickly as other projects on the O-line, and was left without an organization when the preseason wrapped up.
In Indianapolis, Sokoli steps back onto defense, replacing cut defensive end Sterling Bailey. He’s the only end on the Colt’s practice squad.
