Colts sign Lance Louis to reserve/future contract


The Colts have added an offensive lineman with starting experience to their offseason roster.

The club announced Wednesday it had signed offensive guard Lance Louis to a reserve/future contract.

Louis, 28, started 28 games in four seasons with Chicago (2009-2012). He signed with the Dolphins last March, but Miami released him in August.

Louis’ Chicago career ended when he suffered a torn left anterior cruciate ligament in November 2012. Now more than a year removed from the injury, Louis could compete for a roster spot with Indianapolis if he’s in top form. He started the majority of the Bears’ 2012 regular-season games at right guard.
