The Colts have decided to sign defensive end Fili Moala to 1 year contract.
The Colts have kept another impending free agent from hitting the market. Fili Moala, who suffered a torn ACL midway through the season, was signed to a one year deal. The Colts also decided to retain Pat McAfee earlier this week with a franchise tag.
The signing comes as a bit of surprised due to the ACL injury to Moala, but as we saw with Adrian Peterson, the procedure is very safe and good. It could make your knee stronger.
Moala is expected to miss training camp and the majority of the preseason, but should be on track to be ready for Day 1.
Moala is a former 2nd round pick, that hasn't lived up to the hype that came with him. He started all eight games he played for the Colts and started 30 games across the two previous seasons. If Moala is healthy, there’s still a chance he’ll face a challenge for his starting spot as the Colts try to improve their defense from 2012′s 26th-ranked unit.
The monetary details of his contract have not been released.
