Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star is reporting that the Colts will bring back defensive end Fili Moala, signing him to a one-year deal today. Moala ended the 2012 season on injured reserve with an ACL. The former USC standout had just 14 combined tackles on the season with no sacks.

Back in November, yours truly noted that Moala was unlikely to get re-signed by the Colts this offseason.

HA! Joke's on me!

While Moala has indeed been a disappointment as a player (he was a second round pick in 2009 and has developed into little more than a semi-decent depth player), he plays a position that the Colts are in desperate need of serviceable players.

Plus, in fairness to Moala, he looked better playing 3-4 defensive end than playing DT in a 4-3.

No details as yet on the contract numbers, but if Moala was only able to secure a one-year deal after playing out his rookie contract, that tells you all you need to know about his overall worth. Should Moala struggle, or if another player comes along and is simply better, don't be surprised if Moala is cut.
