Colts Add Veteran Offensive Lineman In Todd Herremans

Intro: The Colts made their second offensive line addition of the offseason on Sunday with veteran Todd Herremans coming to Indianapolis.


INDIANAPOLIS – The ability to provide versatility is a commodity desired among offensive linemen.

It's why Todd Herremans has survived 10 NFL seasons.

His 11th will come in Indianapolis.

On Sunday morning, the Colts agreed to terms with the 6-6, 321-pound Herremans.

Colts GM Ryan Grigson is very familiar with Herremans, who has played all 10 of his NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Herremans has started 124 career games (6 at left tackle, 71 at left guard, 23 at right guard and 24 at right tackle).

The Colts head into 2015 with some uncertainty at the right guard spot after starter Hugh Thornton ended the season on injured reserve.

Herremans has played 16 games in six of his 10 seasons but is coming off a biceps injury, which limited him to eight games in 2014. He was released by the Eagles in late February.

The Colts have just one unrestricted free agent along the offensive line this offseason (Joe Reitz). They have now added Herremans and CFL guard Ben Heenan in 2015.[

In talking with ESPN's Josina Anderson](, Herremans said the opportunity to start for a contender played a major role in his decision.

"It was a different experience for me going through trying to find a whole new team," Herremans told Anderson. "Indy seems like a good fit for me and a good opportunity to start. I want to compete for a Super Bowl. I've been close before but never quite close enough. I had a good time speaking with their offensive line coach and their general manager Ryan Grigson. I know him from when he was in Philadelphia. It was good to reconnect. I have a good feeling about it. I'm really excited to get started."
