The Indianapolis Colts announced Tuesday that they’ve signed veteran G Matt Slauson to a contract.

The Colts brought Slausen in for a visit today and apparently liked what they saw from him. He also had interest from the Raiders, but it looks like the Colts presented the opportunity to him.

Slauson, 32, is a former sixth-round pick of the Jets back in 2009. He spent four years in New York before signing on with the Bears in 2013.

The Chargers elected to sign Slauson to a two-year, $3 million contract in 2016 and he was once again testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

In 2017, Slauson appeared in seven games for the Chargers and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 53 guard out of 78 qualifying players at the time he was placed on injured reserve.
