INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts are set to return all five starting five offensive linemen for a third straight season, but quality depth at each position up front remains a priority.
The team addressed that depth today by bringing back a versatile piece in guard/tackle Le'Raven Clark, who was re-signed as a free agent. Terms of the deal were not immediately released.
Clark, who will be 27 by Week 1 of the 2020 season, was a third-round pick by the Colts in 2016 out of Texas Tech. He's played in 35 total games with 12 starts over his four-year career in Indy, including a career-high 15 games played and five starts in 2017.
The 6-foot-5, 311-pound Clark was active for three contests for the Colts last season, but did not see any game action.
Clark's re-signing ensures the Colts return depth at both the tackle and guard positions. The team recently re-signed free-agent-to-be Anthony Castonzo, the starter at left tackle, to a reported two year deal, but tackle/guard Joe Haeg, who also became an unrestricted free agent when the new league year began at 4 p.m. ET Wednesday, signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday, the Bucs announced.
Beyond starters Castonzo (left tackle), Quenton Nelson (left guard), Mark Glowinski (right guard) and Braden Smith (right tackle), others at guard and tackle that remain on the Colts' offseason roster at the tackle and guard positions include Clark, Andrew Donnal, Jake Eldrenkamp, Chaz Green, Brandon Hitner, Cedrick Lang and Travis Vornkahl.
