INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts today signed free agent guard Nico Siragusa and placed center Javon Patterson on the Injured Reserve list.
Siragusa, 6-4, 320 pounds, spent the final three weeks of the 2018 season on the Green Bay Packers’ active roster but did not see game action. After spending the first 14 weeks of the season on the Baltimore Ravens practice squad, he was signed to the Packers’ 53-man roster on December 12, 2018. As a rookie in 2017, Siragusa spent the entire season on the Ravens’ Injured Reserve list. He was originally selected by Baltimore in the fourth round (122nd overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft.
Collegiately, Siragusa played in 54 games (42 starts) at San Diego State. He registered 41 consecutive starts at left guard to finish his career. Siragusa’s 54 straight games played tied for the longest streak in team history and tied for the most games in school history. He became the first Aztecs offensive lineman to earn First Team All-MWC honors twice.
Patterson, 6-3, 307 pounds, was selected by the Colts in the seventh round (246th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft. He played in 48 games (42 starts) at Mississippi and finished his collegiate career with 36 straight starts. Patterson registered starts at left guard (37), center (three) and right guard (two). In 2018, he started all 12 games at left guard. Patterson started all 12 games at left guard in 2017 and helped the Rebels finish as the SEC leader in passing. In 2016, he was the only Ole Miss offensive lineman to start all 12 games (nine at left guard, three at center). As a true freshman in 2015, Patterson played in 12 games with starts at left guard (four) and right guard (two).
