The Colts signed several free agents on Tuesday, among them offensive lineman Donald Thomas, who had spent the previous two seasons with the Patriots.

ProFootballTalk reported Thomas received a four-year, $14 million contract from Indianapolis, solid money and likely a sign the 27-year old will be in the mix for a starting job.

Thomas started seven games last year, six of them at left guard when leg injuries forced Logan Mankins to miss time.

The Colts also re-signed another former Patriot on Tuesday, rewarding the strong play of Darius Butler with a two-year deal.

Thomas and Butler are represented by the same agent, Drew Rosenhaus.
