The Indianapolis Colts are signing Pro Bowl left tackle Eric Fisher to a one-year, $9.4 million deal, ESPN and NFL Network reported Monday.

Fisher, 30, started 113 of his 117 games over the last eight seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, who drafted him No. 1 overall in 2013.

Fisher made 15 starts during the 2020 regular season. He caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes in the fourth quarter of a 34-20 win at the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3.

He made the Pro Bowl in 2018 and 2020 and helped the Chiefs win Super Bowl LIV. He missed Super Bowl LV after tearing his Achilles tendon in the AFC Championship Game win against the Buffalo Bills.

The Chiefs released Fisher in a cost-cutting move in March.

His job in Indianapolis will be protecting new quarterback Carson Wentz’s blind side. The Colts acquired Wentz in a February trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.
