Former Cleveland Browns tight end Randall Telfer was claimed by the Indianapolis Colts, the team announced Monday.

The Browns also waived tight end Jason Vander Laan, who played in four games for the Colts last season but had no receptions.

Telfer started 14 games for the Browns last season, and last week it appeared Telfer would be headed to the Kansas City Chiefs.

He was traded to the Chiefs in exchange for linebacker Dadi Nicolas. But the trade was rescinded by the teams on Friday, and both players were waived.

Telfer played a lot of snaps for the Browns last year, but was seldom used as a receiver. He had just three receptions for 36 yards.

In 2016, Telfer, 25, played in 14 games, including five starts, and had just two catches for 4 yards.

He joins Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron at tight ends on the Colts’ roster.
