Andrew Luck has a new backup.

The Colts have agreed to terms with veteran backup quarterback Scott Tolzien, giving them a new name on the quarterback depth chart after the retirement of Matt Hasselbeck and the release of Josh Freeman.

Tolzien has spent the last three years backing up Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay. In 2013 he started two games but did not play well, throwing one touchdown pass and five interceptions.

The Colts hope Tolzien plays better than that for them. More importantly, the Colts hope Tolzien never has to play at all.
