Todd Herremans was not out of work very long. The long-time Eagles blocker has signed with the Indianapolis Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal is reportedly worth $3.5 million over one year.

Herremans spent the last 10 seasons in Philadelphia after getting drafted by the team in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He was released on Feb. 26, which saved the Eagles $2.8 million in cap space and allowed him to hit the market before the start free agency on Tuesday, March 10. The early dismissal led to a quick relocation for Herremans, as he obviously found a new spot to continue his NFL career.

In Indianapolis, Herremans will likely earn a starting spot. He has the ability to play every position but center, so his versatility gives the Colts options. Herremans played his best football at left guard for the Eagles but also had success at right tackle and most recently, right guard.

It's hardly surprising to see Herremans end up on the Colts. He visited them this week and Colts general manager Ryan Grigson used to be an Eagles front office executive before being hired in Indianapolis.

The Eagles will try to replace Herremans on their own roster with a battle between Matt Tobin, Dennis Kelly, Andrew Gardner and/or a potential rookie or free agent signing.
