Colts sign free agent DE Samson Ebukam

Ebukam spent the last six seasons with the Los Angeles Rams (2017-2020) and San Francisco 49ers (2021-2022). 


The Colts on Friday signed free agent defensive end Samson Ebukam.

The 27-year-old Ebukam joins the Colts after spending the last six seasons with the Los Angeles Rams (2017-2020) and San Francisco 49ers (2021-2022). Ebukam has 23 1/2 sacks, 52 quarterback hits and 28 tackles for a loss in 96 games (61 starts) with the Rams and 49ers.

Ebukam in 2022 set career highs in games started (15), sacks (5), quarterback hits (13) and tackles for a loss (seven). Per Pro Football Focus, Ebukam had 48 total pressures in 2022 – a total that would've ranked second on the Colts behind only defensive tackle DeForest Buckner (59).

From 2018-2022, Ebukam recorded at least three sacks, three tackles for a loss, six quarterback hits, one forced fumble and one pass break-ups in every season.

Ebukam was a fourth-round pick (No. 125 overall) of the Rams in the 2017 NFL Draft. The Emmaus, Nigeria native played his college ball at Eastern Washington.
