Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that LT Eric Fisher and the Colts have agreed on a one-year deal.
Fisher is a huge addition to the already elite offensive line. The deal is worth $9.4M and will now be protecting new Colts QB Carson Wentz. Fisher tore his achilles right before the Super Bowl, but the Colts are comfortable enough with his rehab to sign him. This is a big boost for Wentz and Jonathan Taylor who figures to handle the bulk of the carries in the Colts backfield.

In a surprise move Thursday, the Chiefs announce they are releasing former No. 1 overall pick LT Eric Fisher.
Fisher is coming off a Pro Bowl season, but a torn Achilles injury led to him missing Super Bowl LV. At just 30 years old, Fisher should have plenty left in the tank and will be a hot commodity on the free-agent market, granted his recovery is on track. The Chiefs clear $12M in cap room with the move.
