Former Westbrook HS and UMaine defensive end/ linebacker Trevor Bates did not make it through last day cuts by the Indianapolis Colts as the team trimmed to the league mandated 53 players.

Bates was one of 15 players waived. The Colts released other players and placed some players on injured reserve in order to get down to 53.

Bates was a 7th round draft pick back in April. He had six tackles during the preseason games.

There is a chance he could be claimed by another team or re-sign with the Colts to their practice squad.

Here are the nine linebackers the Colts will start the season with...

Linebacker (9): OLB-Trent Cole, ILB-D’Qwell Jackson, ILB-Edwin Jackson, OLB-Curt Maggitt, OLB-Robert Mathis, ILB-Josh McNary, ILB-Sio Moore, ILB-Antonio Morrison, OLB-Erik Walden
