Colts claim Matt Jones, Matt Hazel
Meanwhile, two players the Redskins cut were claimed off waivers. Both running back Matt Jones and wide receiver Matt Hazel were picked up by the Indianapolis Colts, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Jones, a third-round pick in 2015, wasn’t in Washington’s plans this offseason as the team went with Chris Thompson, Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine and Mack Brown at the position.
Hazel was buried on the depth chart this summer. He received significant time during the preseason finale, however, and caught four passes for 60 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday.
