Asante was on the roster during preseason and played well. He replaces the recently-waived Joe Lefeged.

The Colts announced Friday morning that they have re-signed safety Larry Asante. Asante was on the roster during preseason and stood out with some impressive play. His pick-six against Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer during the fourth quarter of the Colts' third preseason game was especially noteworthy.

Yes this is the same Brian Hoyer who recently led Cleveland to two straight wins following the Trent Richardson trade to the Colts. Also the same Brian Hoyer who injured his knee in the Browns' Thursday Night Football win over the Bills.

Back to Asante he replaces recently-waived safety Joe Lefeged who was injured all of preseason and has done little-to-nothing to distinguish himself in 2013. In 2012 he was the team's special teams captain but he was also arrested during the offseason for fleeing the scene and carrying an unlicensed firearm.
