The Indianapolis Colts have agreed in principle with outside linebacker Bjoern Werner.
Werner, 6-3, 260 pounds, was selected by the Colts in the first round (24th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. While at Florida State, he was named the ACC’s Defensive Player of the Year and was a unanimous All-America first-team selection as a junior in 2012. In his final season with the Seminoles, Werner started all 14 games and finished 13th in the nation with 13.0 sacks, while ranking second in the ACC with 18.0 tackles for loss. He also posted 42 tackles (30 solo), eight passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
For his collegiate career, Werner recorded 99 tackles (63 solo), 23.5 sacks, 35.0 tackles for loss, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries, including a 25-yard return for a touchdown. He also intercepted one pass and deflected 17 others. His 23.5 sacks ranked eighth among active NCAA FBS players and tied Jamal Reynolds for fourth on the school’s career record list.
