Colts sign safety Colt Anderson, get CB Josh Gordy to sign tender

New, comments

Yes, it seems the Colts have finally signed a player named "Colt."

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts announced today that they have signed safety Colt Anderson. Anderson led the Philadelphia Eagles in special teams tackles last season, and has started six games for them in his four-year career. Anderson's connection to Colts general manager Ryan Grigson goes back to when Grigson was working in the Eagles front office.

This signing looks like a special teams move rather than Grigson finding a viable option to replace Antoine Bethea, who left via free agency this offseason to sign with the 49ers. Anderson hasn't started a game since 2012.

In other news, restricted free agent corner Josh Gordy signed his qualifying offer. He will remain with the Colts for 2014 on a one-year deal. Gordy played in 12 games last year, notching his first interception as a Colt during the team's Week Four win over the Jaguars.
