He's the first major offseason move by Indy. The Colts' other primary tight end, Coby Fleener, kicker Adam Vinatieri and three other starters - linebacker Jerrell Freeman, safety Dwight Lowery and cornerback Greg Toler - could all become free agents Wednesday.

Indy also released backup quarterback Josh Freeman on Monday, leaving the Colts with only two quarterbacks on their roster, Andrew Luck and Stephen Morris.
