Veteran Wide Receiver Re-Signs With Colts
INDIANAPOLIS – Aaron Moorehead has been with the Colts four seasons, playing a key role as a reserve receiver.
Now, Moorehead has rejoined the Colts.
Moorehead, a fifth-year veteran wide receiver who became an unrestricted free agent following this past season, has re-signed with the Colts, the club announced Monday. Duration and terms were not disclosed.
Moorehead, who signed with the Colts as a free agent following the 2003 NFL Draft, has played in 28 games in four NFL seasons, catching 23 passes for 265 yards and a touchdown during four regular seasons.
Moorehead, who played collegiately at Illinois, had his most productive season last season, catching eight regular-season passes for 82 yards
and his first NFL touchdown. He also played extensively in his first career postseason appearances, playing in all four playoff games and catching five passes for 41 yards during the Colts’ run to Super Bowl XLI.
The re-signing of Moorehead gives the Colts three receivers with extensive NFL experience entering this weekend’s 2007 NFL Draft, with the others being Pro Bowl selections Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison. Wayne made his first Pro Bowl appearance last season; Harrison, his eighth.
John Standeford, a second-year veteran from Purdue, was on the Colts’ roster for four regular-season games and the postseason last season.
Other veteran receivers currently on the Colts’ roster: first-year veterans Devin Aromashodu, Brian Hare and Kevin McMahan.
