The Colts went outside for one of their offensive line fixes, but are staying in-house for another.

The team just announced that guard Joe Reitz had agreed to a contract extension, hours before he’d have hit unrestricted free agency.

Reitz has started 24 games over the past five seasons with the Colts, and has the ability to play multiple positions. He has started at three different spots, playing right tackle and both guard spots, though injuries have kept him off the field.

With the addition of veteran guard Todd Herremans, it gives the Colts a pair of guys whose versatility will help them improve a front that needs improving.
