Colts sign Josh Gordy; Costa retires
The Indianapolis Colts announced Monday that restricted free agent cornerback Josh Gordy has signed his qualifying offer.
Gordy appeared in 12 games in 2013 and registered nine tackles (eight solo), three passes defensed, one interception and four special teams stops. He competed in both postseason games and totaled eight tackles (seven solo) and one pass defensed. Gordy's interception came in Week 4 at Jacksonville where he was part of a defense that limited the Jaguars to 165 net passing yards.
For his career, Gordy has tallied 77 tackles (56 solo), eight passes defensed, four interceptions, 1.0 sack, one fumble recovery and nine special teams tackles in 43 games played (10 starts). In three postseason games, he has notched eight tackles, one pass defensed and one special teams stop.
The Colts also placed center Phil Costa on the Reserve/Retired list.
"Phil feels it's in his best interest to retire from the game," said General Manager Ryan Grigson. "We certainly understand and wish him nothing but the best."
