The Indianapolis Colts have shored-up their offensive line for the upcoming season, re-signing guard Jack Mewhort to a one-year deal. The deal is worth $1.5 million in base salary with $1.5 million in incentives.

Mewhort, 26, spent his first four NFL seasons with the Colts after being drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Ohio State. Injuries held Mewhort back the last two seasons, landing him on the injured reserved list twice. In 2017, Mewhort only saw the field for five games, starting all five.

Mewhort had offers from other teams in free agency, but the confidence that the Colts showed in his ability to bounce back was important.

The Colts will now return all of their offensive line starters from last season. The only offensive lineman that is still a free agent is Mike Person, who only started four games for the team last season. Mewhort will look to help the Colts offensive line bounce back after a rough 2017 season, where they were ranked as the No. 25 offensive line in football, according to Pro Football Focus.
