The Indianapolis Colts signed defensive tackle Brandon McKinney on Thursday.

In 61 career games (six starts) with the San Diego Chargers (2006-07) and Baltimore Ravens (2008-11), McKinney has totaled 60 tackles, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and two passes defensed.

"Brandon brings a welcomed amount of size, power and experience to our defensive line," said general manager Ryan Grigson. "Interior players in his mold aren't easy to come by in the draft or in free agency for that matter. We felt he could fill a valuable role and his familiarity with Coach Pagano and the defense itself was a positive as well. We are looking forward to Brandon helping us in developing a strong presence inside."
