Colts sign Locke to a 2-year deal

The Indianapolis Colts filled their void at the punter position as they signed Jeff Locke to a 2-year/$3.45 million deal. Locke had spent the first 4 seasons of his career with the Minnesota Vikings and he put up decent stats during his time there as he never had below a 41.6 average. Locke does have big shoes to fill after the retirement of Pat McAfee who was the punter for the Colts for several years. Locke at least gives the Colts some stability at the punter position, but it isn’t too difficult to find decent players at the position anyway. Locke is a decent punter and therefore this is just a decent signing for the Colts, but at least they are getting a proven veteran punter rather than drafting one.
