The Indianapolis Colts have released veteran defensive end Kendall Langford after a failed physical on Wednesday.

In a statement from their website, Colts General Manager Chris Ballard said “Kendall is well respected amongst everyone in the organization and a great ambassador of the horseshoe,” said Colts General Manager Chris Ballard. “We wish him all the best moving forward.”

“Kendall emerged as a team leader shortly after we signed him in 2015,” said Head Coach Chuck Pagano. “He gave everything he had on and off the field, and we are grateful for his contributions. He is a great family man and will be successful in his future career.”

Langford played in 135 career games and totaled 369 tackles, 22.5 sacks, 20 passes defended, four forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in his time with the Colts (2015-16), St. Louis Rams (2012-14) and Miami Dolphins (2008-2011).
