INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts added some late-season depth to their defensive line this week, when they signed free agent defensive tackle Caraun Reid.
Reid comes to Indy with four years of NFL experience. A fifth-round pick by the Detroit Lions in the 2014 NFL Draft, he's played in 34 career NFL games with 12 starts to his credit, and has collected 47 tackles, three sacks and two passes defensed.
But Reid has also been able to put himself in the right spot at the right time on multiple occasions, as both fumbles he's recovered in his career have been returned for touchdowns — including one for 61 yards against the Indianapolis Colts last season as a member of the San Diego Chargers.
Reid had a standout career at Princeton, where he played in 40 games and totaled 168 tackles (41 for a loss) with 20.5 sacks, 10 passes defensed, two forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one interception, while he also blocked seven kicks. He became the school's first two-time All-America honoree his senior year in 2013, when he had 26 tackles (11 for a loss) for 6.5 sacks, one interception, one pass defensed and one blocked kick.
His most productive NFL season came in 2015, when he played in 14 games with 12 starts for the Lions, and had 29 tackles with two sacks and recovered a Russell Wilson fumble for a touchdown. He was claimed off waivers by the Chargers just before the start of the 2016 season, briefly went back to the Lions for a week in October, and spent a few weeks with the Washington Redskins before being waived, and then signed by the Colts on Monday.
So what exactly does the film show on Reid? Let's take a look at some of his career highlights over the years:
