INDIANAPOLIS (April 13, 2006) -- The Indianapolis Colts have re-signed veteran linebacker Rob Morris.
Morris has started 60 games since the Colts selected him in the first round of the 2000 NFL Draft but spent last season backing up Gary Brackett. In six seasons, all with the Colts, Morris has recorded 483 tackles, seven sacks, forced two fumbles, recovered one and had one interception.
It's the second successive year Morris has re-signed with the Colts after becoming an unrestricted free agent. Morris' return should also help solidify depth at the position, where the Colts already have lost David Thornton to Tennessee.
