Colts sign former-Ravens guard Adam Terry

The effort to "get bigger" on the offensive line is starting to look less and less like a rumor. Yesterday, the Colts agreed to terms on a one-year contract with 6'8, 335 pound tackle Adam Terry, formerly of the Ravens. Adam Shefter provided us with the news via Twitter.

Terry was drafted by the Ravens in the second round in 2005 out of Syracuse. He started 18 games over a three year period, but missed all of 2009 with a knee injury he suffered in training camp. It's unlikely the Colts signed him without putting him through a physical to test the knee. He was a starter on the Ravens 2008 team which won two post-season games before losing to the Steelers in the AFCCG.

It's unclear as yet how the Colts will use Terry. Do they keep him at tackle? If so, what does that mean for starter Ryan Diem on the right side? Or, do they move Terry to guard and let him compete with the newly signed Andy Alleman and last year's surprise player, Kyle DeVan?

Regardless, this is the second offensive lineman signed in a week whose weight is heavier than 310 pounds. It's starting to look like Ryan Lilja's agent might have been on-the-level when he said the Colts cut his client because they wanted to get bigger on the o-line.
