Colts Re-Sign Veterans Reid, Fletcher, Gandy
INDIANAPOLIS – Darrell Reid, Bryan Fletcher and Dylan Gandy have been key reserves for the Colts each of the past three seasons.
Now, all three are staying that way.
Reid, a fourth-year veteran defensive tackle from the University of Minnesota, and Gandy – a fourth-year veteran offensive guard from Texas Tech – have re-signed with the Colts, as has Fletcher, a fourth-year tight end from UCLA.
Duration and terms of the deals were not disclosed.
Reid, after making the team as an undrafted free agent in 2005, has started twice and played in 39 games, emerging last season as one of the Colts' top special teams players. He started one of 16 regular-season games, making 14 tackles on defense and registering a half a sack.
Reid finished last season as the Colts' leading special teams tackler with 22, including 21 solos, and he was named the AFC Special Teams Player-of-the-Week following a four-tackle game against the Houston Texans on December 23.
Gandy, a fourth-round selection in the 2005 NFL Draft, has started 14 games in three seasons. He started 11 games in 2006 when starter Ryan Lilja was out with an injury.
Fletcher, who signed with the Colts as a free agent in 2005, has started 18 of 46 games in three seasons, catching 54 passes for 547 yards and five touchdowns. He started 12 games in 2005, and has caught 18 passes in each of his three seasons.
He had 143 yards receiving and no touchdowns this past season.
