The Colts have let go of one of their starting cornerbacks. The team is releasing Pierre Desir, reports NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

The defensive back was set to make $7M in 2020, but the Colts released him with zero dead money, per Rapoport.

The 2014 fourth-rounder bounced around the NFL a bit during his first few years in the NFL. He eventually found a home in Indy, where he’s spent the past three seasons. After establishing a number of career highs in 2018 (including 12 starts), the Colt signed Desir to a three-year, $22.5M extension ($12M guaranteed) last year.

The 29-year-old proceeded to appear in 12 games (11 starts) during the 2019 campaign. He finished the season with 50 tackles, 11 passes defended and a career-high three interceptions.
