Colts sign rookies Austin Collie (WR, BYU) and Fili Moala (DT, USC)

John Oehser, via ESPN's John Clayton, gives us some good news on the eve of the Colts' 2009 training camp opening:

The Indianapolis Colts continued to secure contracts with the 2009 NFL Draft class Saturday, coming to an agreement with DT Fili Moala.

Moala, a second-round selection from the University of Southern California, has agreed to a four-year contract with the Colts, ESPN is reporting.

The agreement leaves first-round RB Donald Brown as the lone rookie without a contract agreement, but ESPN NFL analyst John Clayton reported Saturday that "the team is optimistic it will have every draft choice in camp on time."

The other great news, which John Clayton has not updated his ESPN report with, is that rookie WR Austin Collie has also signed. Clayton also incorrectly calls Collie Indy's 3rd round pick. Need to update that page, John!

Hopefully, between now and tomorrow, the Colts and Indy's first round pick (Donald Brown) will have an agreement, because there is little reason not to. The Green Bay Packers have already signed the #26 pick in the 2009 NFL Draft (Clay Matthews) and the player drafted immediately after Donald (Eric Wood) has been signed by the Buffalo Bills. So, if Donald's agent wants anything substantially more than shake n bake's estimated 5 years, 13.1million, with 7 million guaranteed contract, then he's either high or stupid.

Likely, we'll see Donald sign by tonight or tomorrow, giving Indy its full stable of rookies entering camp.
