The Indianapolis Colts are signing former Philadelphia Eagles safety Colt Anderson.

Anderson is a special-teams ace who led the Eagles last season with a career-high 16 special-teams tackles.

In four seasons with the Eagles, he started six games and played in 48 games and recorded 47 tackles with four pass deflections, one interception and two forced fumbles with 46 special-teams tackles.


In 2012, Anderson started the final four games at safety and posted a team-high 36 tackles during that span. He was also named the Eagles 2012 Ed Block Courage Award recipient.


Anderson was originally signed by the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Montana in 2009. He was then signed by the Eagles off the Vikings' practice squad on Nov. 10, 2010.

Anderson finished his college career at Montana ranked fifth on the school’s all-time list with 313 tackles to go with eight interceptions, three fumble recoveries, three forced fumbles and one sack.
