INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts signed free agent left tackle Eric Fisher to fill the void on their offensive line created by the retirement of Anthony Costanzo. The team confirmed the news on Wednesday.

Fisher was released by Kansas City after he sustained a torn Achilles tendon in the AFC Championship game and missed the Super Bowl. That injury may carry into the 2021 regular season.

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, and ESPN's Adam Schefter, Fisher agreed to a one-year, $9.4 million deal. 

Colts General Manager Chris Ballard was the Chiefs’ director of player personnel when Kansas City selected Fisher first overall in the 2013 NFL Draft out of Central Michigan.
