The Colts cut Samson Satele, their starting center in 2013, a week ago and they signed a player who could be in the mix to replace him on Thursday.

The team announced that they have signed former Cowboys center Phil Costa. No terms were announced.

“Phil is a young, hard-nosed and physical center who has shown he can play at a winning level in our league,” said Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson in the team’s announcement. “He will provide strong competition at the center position.”

Costa started all 16 games for the Cowboys in 2011 and began the next season as the starter before a dislocated ankle ended his season. The Cowboys drafted Travis Frederick in the first round last year, leaving Costa to spend most of the season on the bench and in a brief engagement to Hulk Hogan’s daughter.

Costa will likely say his prayers, eat his vitamins and compete with 2013 fourth-rounder Khaled Holmes for playing time during the offseason and training camp.
