Colts announce deal with Todd Herremans

One of the multiple Eagles veterans cast aside before the start of free agency has found a new home.

Colts owner Jim Irsay announced Sunday morning the club had come to terms with offensive guard Todd Herremans.

According to ESPN’s Adam Caplan, Herremans received a one-year contract worth up to $3.5 million.

The 32-year-old Herremans started 124 games over 10 seasons with the Eagles. A biceps injury prematurely ended his 2014 season.

Herremans likely will slide into the starting lineup at right guard with Indianapolis.

The Colts averaged 3.9 yards per carry a season ago, which ranked in the bottom half of the NFL. Quarterback Andrew Luck, meanwhile, has been sacked 100 times in regular season play in his first three NFL campaigns, though he took a career-low 27 sacks last season.

  1. Best of luck to Todd from.all Eagles fans, he is the exact kind of player we love. No ego, played anywhere on the line he was asked, played hurt, played with heart. Stand up guy and never a dirty player. It was time for the Eagles to move on and while I am sad that he wont play his whole career here, I am glad he landed on his feet so quickly.

  2. It’s a start for my beloved Colts. But we got to get younger as as well as better on the Oline. Let the line and our QB grow together.

    Colts Record vs. AFC North last year: 4-1 Grimreaper12= total fraud

    I seriously think we could have won that shootout with Pittsburgh if we had Vontae to cover Antonio Brown that day.

  4. On a serious note, I think there are multiple positions where Grigson can add a veteran to hold down the fort and still focus on drafting at that spot. Guard, running back, and safety are spots where they can bring in a veteran on a short term deal (Herremans, Gore, Adams) and then draft at the position this year or next. If they sign some veterans to front loaded, short term deals, they’ll be able to pay Luck, Hilton, and others as the draftees take over those spots. For better or worse, I don’t see Grigson as the guy who is going to break the bank for the biggest names.
