Colts sign Collins as backup QB

The Indianapolis Colts are bringing a veteran quarterback out of retirement, hoping Kerry Collins will be a solid backup plan in case Peyton Manning isn’t healed in time for the regular season. Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted Wednesday: “We have agreed to terms with Kerry Collins…more details to come.” The 38-year-old Collins retired in July after 16 seasons in the NFL, most recently with the Tennessee Titans. As a starter, Collins led teams to the playoffs four times, including a Super Bowl appearance with the New York Giants in the 2000 season.
