It brings me great pleasure to announce that defensive back and speedster Matt Giordano re-signed with Indy. Easily one of my favorite Colts players a tremendous special teams asset. Now if we can only re-sign Darrell Reid, I'll feel much better about our special teams coverage going into next season.

Colts Re-Sign Veteran Safety Matt Giordano
INDIANAPOLIS – Matt Giordano has been one of the Colts’ most valuable backups and special teams players the past several seasons.

Giordano, who has started five regular-season games and played 39 in three NFL seasons, has 52 tackles in three seasons,
and has played a key role as a backup and special teams player. One of the fastest players on the team, he has three interceptions in three seasons, including two last season.
He returned his first interception this past season 83 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter of a season-opening victory over New Orleans.
Giordano, originally a fourth-round selection from California in the 2005 NFL Draft, had four special teams tackles last year. He started four of 12 games played last season.
He had nine special teams tackles in 2006.
