The free agent pool is getting shallower, as teams try to sign their own in advance of the market.

The Colts did just that, keeping a guy they reclaimed from the scrap heap.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Colts gave guard Mark Glowinski a three-year, $18 million extension.

Claimed off waivers from Seattle in December 2017, Glowinski became a starter and a key part of one of the league’s best lines this season.

He started nine of the last 11 games after replacing the injured Matt Slauson in the lineup. A former fourth-round pick of the Seahawks, Glowinski capitalized on the Colts having a pile of cap room and a desire to spend it on their own guys.
