Day agreed Wednesday with the Colts on a one-year contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Day kicked off the 2019 campaign as a backup in San Francisco, but he was thrust into a starting role Week 11 following a season-ending injury to D.J. Jones (ankle) and performed admirably in that role. He'll provide the Colts with depth at defensive tackle.
Day had 15 tackles (10 solo) and a sack in 16 games this season. Day began the year as a backup, but he took over as a starting defensive tackle next to DeForest Buckner after D.J. Jones (ankle) was shut down following Week 11. The near-300 pound tackle shined against the run, but he was also able to generate some pass-rush pressure despite his larger size. Day will be an unrestricted free agent this upcoming offseason, but he should land somewhere (if San Francisco doesn't re-sign him) following a solid showing in 2019.
