The Indianapolis Colts brought in one wide receiver and waived another, the team announced Friday.

The Colts signed Kasen Williams to a one-year contract and released fellow wideout DeAndre Smelter.

Williams has seen sparse action since he was signed by the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2015 out of the University of Washington.

The 6-foot-1, 219-pound Williams appeared in a career-high seven games (two starts) last season with the Cleveland Browns and had nine receptions for 84 yards.

He appeared in three games over his first two seasons with the Seahawks, making one catch for eight yards as a rookie. He also had one carry for five yards.

Smelter spent the previous three seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. A fourth-round draft pick out of Georgia Tech in 2015, Smelton caught one pass for 23 yards in two games. He had signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts in January.
