Colts sign Nasty Guard Todd Herremans

I’m not quite sure how they signed someone already, but the Colts have agreed to terms with 32-year old offensive right guard Todd Herremans.

There’s some gray area on free agents in my eyes, I didn’t think anyone could sign with new teams until Tuesday.

Here’s what to know about Todd Herremans:

  • Drafted in the 4th round of the 2005 NFL Draft out of Saginaw State by the Eagles
  • Knows GM Ryan Grigson from Grigson’s tenure in Philadelphia.
  • Despite being beloved by the Philadelphia fan base for his ‘nastiness’, he’s never been selected to a Pro Bowl.
  • 127 career games played, 124 career starts.
  • Has had a gruesome injury history.

He probably slides right into the starting lineup if healthy for Indianapolis. You have to hope his best football isn’t in his rear view mirror, and Herremans is still hungry. If so, this is exactly the type of move that didn’t cost a ton and they didn’t need to waste a draft pick on it. Now just add a great tackle in the first round and a center not long after in the draft.
