The Indianapolis Colts have signed defensive tackle Fili Moala to an undisclosed contract extension.
Moala could have become an unrestricted free agent next week. The team confirmed the deal, but did not release terms.
It's the second personnel move the Colts have made in less than a week. On Friday, the Colts used the franchise tag on punter Pat McAfee.
Moala was Indy's second-round draft pick in 2009 and has 86 tackles and two sacks in 48 career games. He also scored a touchdown on a fumble recovery. Last season, Moala had 21 tackles and made eight starts before going down with a season-ending knee injury.
Before the moves with McAfee and Moala, Indy was projected to have more than $40 million to spend in free agency.

The question on everyone’s mind right now (except in Baltimore ), is Joe Flacco worth the contract?

However, the Colts young roster rallied around their coach and found...

I recently caught up with former Notre Dame and current Indianapolis Colts safety Sergio Brown. The past 13 months have been a bit of a roller coaster for Brown. After starting for parts of 2011 and playing for the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI last February, he was surprisingly one of New England's final 2012 August roster cuts. The two-year vet was quickly snatched by Indianapolis...
