The Colts signed Rodgers to the practice squad Wednesday.
Rogers was once a well-regarded prospect but has had trouble finding his footing in the NFL. He did appear in 16 games in 2022, tallying 16 receptions for 204 yards and one touchdown split between the Packers and Texans. He could have landed in the right spot to have a chance to contribute, as the Colts only have four healthy receivers currently on their depth chart.

Rodgers was waived by the Colts on Tuesday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Rodgers' difficulties with catching on with a club since being selected in the third round of the 2021 Draft by the Packers will continue. The Clemson product joined the team in early August after being let go by the Texans. The 23-year-old secured 12 of 17 targets for 154 yards and a touchdown for Houston last season in six contests, while catching four of eight targets for 50 yards in 10 contests with Green Bay during the 2022 campaign.
Rodgers agreed to terms with the Colts on Wednesday.
The 2021 third-round pick has found his third home in two years after being waived by both the Packers and Texans. Rodgers has tallied 20 receptions for 249 yards and one touchdown in throughout his career, but he's mainly been a return man, as he's recorded 626 return yards. He's had issues holding on to the ball, as he's had eight fumbles in just two years, but expect Indianapolis' newest receiver to compete for the kick and punt returner job ahead of the coming season.
Rodgers was waived by the Texans on Sunday.
Rodgers saw action in six contests for Houston last season, after being waived by the Packers mid-season. He finished his time with the Texans having caught 12 of 17 targets for 154 yards and a touchdown. A third-round selection out of Clemson in 2021, Rodgers has yet to carve out a steady role for himself in two seasons. He'll now work to earn an opportunity elsewhere.
Rodgers caught three of four targets for 22 yards in a 32-31 victory over Indianapolis in Week 18.
Rodgers was given an opportunity due to a late-season injury to Nico Collins (foot) and likely played his way into the 2023 mix at wideout. Rodgers caught 12 of 17 targets for 154 yards and a touchdown over the final five games. The Texans will be hiring a new head coach and probably a new offensive coordinator, so personnel decisions are up in the air, but Rodgers has two years left on his contract. If the organization parts with Brandin Cooks, there could be a starting spot available for a wide receiver. The downside for fantasy speculators is this will be another rebuilding year in Houston with new coaches and a new quarterback.
Rodgers caught both of his targets for 12 yards and ran once for four yards in Sunday's 31-3 loss to the Jaguars.
Rodgers has been given a fresh start in Houston after the Packers released the 2021 third-round draft pick in November. He's made a couple of big catches for the Texans -- a 28-yard touchdown reception in the near-upset of Dallas and 37-yarder on the go-ahead drive in Week 16's win over Tennessee. Rodgers has nine catches on 13 targets for 132 yards (14.7 YPC) over the last four games.
