The Indianapolis Colts made another pair of signings on Tuesday, signing free-agent guard Donald Thomas away from the New England Patriots, according to ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss, and Lawrence Sidbury away from the Atlanta Falcons, per NBC's Pro Football Talk.
Thomas signed with the Patriots in 2011, after Dan Koepper was lost to injury. Thomas was originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL Draft, out of the University of Connecticut. Miami released Thomas prior to the 2010 season, then signing with the Detroit Lions -- though he did not appear in a game with Detroit -- before making his way to New England.
As Reiss notes, Thomas was the Patriots' top reserve on the offensive line in 2012, appearing in 48 percent of New England's offensive snaps. Thomas will certainly provide solid depth on the offensive line for Andrew Luck and the Colts going forward.
Sidbury played defensive end for the Falcons, but per Pro Football Talk, the Colts are listing him as a linebacker. Atlanta originally drafted Sidbury in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. His best season in Atlanta came in 2011, when he recorded 11 tackles and four sacks.
Terms of Thomas and Sidbury's deals are currently unknown.
