Indianapolis lands inside linebacker Sheppard

Monday, April 29, 2013 02:11 pm
The Indianapolis Colts have traded outside linebacker Jerry Hughes to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for inside linebacker Kelvin Sheppard.Hughes was a first-round pick in 2010, but has not lived up to expectations in terms of production. He switched from defensive end to outside linebacker as the Colts changed defenses last season. He had four of his five career sacks last season.

“We wish nothing but the best for Jerry in Buffalo,” Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson said in a released statement. “He's a talented guy that did everything we asked of him. At the same time, we are very pleased to be getting a young linebacker who has been a productive starter in this league.”

Sheppard, a third-round pick out of LSU in 2011, started 24 games for the Bills over the last two seasons, with 150 tackles. He will join the Colts inside linebacker unit of Jerrell Freeman, Pat Angerer and Kavell Conner.
