The Indianapolis Colts today signed free agent tackle Eric Pike and placed guard Donald Thomas on Injured Reserve.
Pike, 6-5, 298 pounds, was originally signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent on May 13, 2014 and was waived on May 15. He was a four-year starter at left tackle for Towson and was a co-captain during his senior season. In 2013, Pike was named a Football Championship Series All-America selection as the Tigers compiled a 10-2 regular season record while reaching the NCAA FCS Championship Game. He also earned All-CAA first-team honors for the second straight season. Pike capped his collegiate career having started in all 49 games he appeared in. As a junior, he started all 11 games and blocked for a Tigers offense that averaged more than 31.0 points per game as Towson reached the Colonial Athletic Association championship.
Thomas has played in 45 career games (23 starts) over the past six years of his NFL career. In 2013, he started two games for the Colts before being placed on Injured Reserve on September 17, 2013. Thomas was originally signed by the team as an unrestricted free agent on March 13, 2013.
