Tyms (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with the Colts on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Tyms was on the Colts injured reserve list prior to reaching this settlement. The 27-year-old wide out caught five passes on the Patriots last season.
Tyms stood out in spring practices and got plenty of time with the No. 1 offense, the Indianapolis Star reports. The Colts have a clear top three wide receivers with T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett, but the rest of of the depth chart is unsettled. Quan Bray could make the team as a returner, but Tyms and Josh Boyce will compete for roster spots as the fourth and fifth receivers.
The Colts have signed Tyms, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. The Colts bolstered their depth at wideout Thursday by adding a pair of former New England pass-catchers to the mix, in Tyms and Josh Boyce. With the 27-year-old Tyms, the team adds a 6-foot-3, 204-pounder who brings good size and some potential as a deep threat to the table.
The Patriots re-signed receiver Brian Tyms after declining to tender him as a restricted free agent, according to the NFL transaction wire. Tyms, 26, played in 11 games last year, catching five passes for 82 yards and a touchdown.
The Patriots declined to tender wide receivers Brian Tyms and Greg Orton before the beginning of the league year Tuesday, making both players free agents.
