Colts G.M. Ryan Grigson continues to stockpile former Eagles offensive linemen during his first offseason in Indianapolis. In March, he signed OG Mike McGlynn as a free agent, and then traded with Philly for RT Winston Justice.

Yesterday, Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted out that the team had claimed OG Zane Taylor off waivers. Taylor, like McGlynn and Justice, is a former Eagle. Taylor was released from Philly after the team signed free agent Alfred McCullough. The Colts made room for Taylor by cutting OG Mike Murphy.

From Associated Press:

Taylor is a 6-foot-2, 309-pound guard who was signed as an undrafted free agent by the New York Jets in 2011. He joined the Buccaneers practice squad in September, before signing with Philadelphia's practice squad in November.

At Utah, Taylor started 38 games and was a three-time all-conference selection.

Another note: Former Colts tight end Brody Eldridge, who was cut on May 17th, was immediately claimed off waivers by the Rams.
