On Wednesday, the Colts cut loose Josh Williams, a veteran defensive tackle. The very next day, they kept another defensive lineman from becoming an unrestricted free agent.
Versatile defensive end Raheem Brock, who moves inside to play left defensive tackle on passing downs, re-signed with the team for five years according to a report at NFL.com.
"He's extremely happy that coach Dungy and Bill Polian expressed that they wanted to have him back and we wanted to get it done," said Kevin Pompey, Brock's agent.
The defensive lineman out of Temple was originally drafted by the Eagles in the seventh round of the 2002 draft, but they didn't have enough money in their rookie pool to keep him. So the Colts grabbed him when they saw that he was released.
Since then, Brock has become a reliable player who has shown a consistently high level of performance over the past two seasons, logging 47 total tackles in 2004 and 44 in 2005. And he added 6.5 sacks in each of those seasons. This past year, he added four forced fumbles to his resume after posting just two in his first three seasons.
Brock played the 2005 season under a one-year deal that paid him $1.43 million dollars as a restricted free agent.
