The Indianapolis Colts have signed free agent defensive tackle Brandon McKinney to a two-year contract, Jeremy Fowler of the Pioneer Press reports.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
McKinney, 28, entered the NFL with the San Diego Chargers, who signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State in 2006. In 20 games over three seasons, the 6-foot-2, 345-pound run-stuffer picked up 23 tackles and two passes defensed before he was waived midway through the 2008 season.
Signed by the Baltimore Ravens, McKinney has 37 tackles in 41 games over the last four seasons while playing in a reserve role. McKinney played for Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, who was the defensive coordinator with the Ravens before landing the Colts job in January, and had a season of overlap with Colts defensive coordinator Greg Manusky, who coached linebackers with the Chargers in 2006.
