Indianapolis has signed free agent defensive tackle Aubrayo Franklin and is bringing back offensive guard Joe Reitz.
The Colts made the announcements Wednesday afternoon.
Franklin, who is 6-foot-1, 315 pounds, is a 10-year veteran who played most recently with San Diego last year. He made nine starts for the Chargers and finished with 23 tackles. He was originally drafted by Baltimore in 2003, has four career sacks and is the eighth free agent Indy has signed from another team.
Reitz started eight games at guard for Indy last season and was an exclusive rights free agent. The Colts said he signed his tender Wednesday.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Matt Hasselbeck started his career as a backup to Brett Favre. He could end it being the backup to Andrew Luck.
The Patriots had Dwight Freeney and John Abraham in for a visit just about a week ago today. The visits didn't result in any signings, and both moved on to meet with the Denver Broncos today. Neither of those visits ended in any commitments either, as it's likely the Broncos were just doing their due diligence in case they lose pass rusher Elvis Dumervil. Dumvervill, of course...
