INDIANAPOLIS – One of the most inexperienced positions on the Colts’ roster added some experience on Wednesday morning.


The Colts signed cornerback Kenneth Acker on Wednesday.


Acker has 15 starts (40 career games played) in stops with the 49ers and Chiefs.


With that resume, Acker becomes the most experienced corner on the Indy roster.


Chris Ballard was with the Chiefs when they traded for Acker in August of 2016.


At that time, Acker was coming off a 13-start campaign with the 49ers. That followed a 2014 rookie season in which a foot injury sidelined the 6th round pick for the entire year.


Following one year as a starter with San Francisco, Acker was mainly a reserve with the Chiefs with his rookie contract running out last month. According to Pro Football Focus, Acker ranked near the bottom in cornerback rankings in 2017.


Acker is 26 years old and stands 6-0 and 190 pounds.


The cornerbacks currently on the roster for the Colts are: Acker, Pierre Desir, Nate Hairston, Chris Milton, Kenny Moore, D.J. White and Quincy Wilson.


Before the Draft arrives in 2 weeks, Desir and Wilson are the expected 2018 starters with Hairston back for another season in the slot.
