News: Irving (knee) signed a three-year, $9.25 million contract with the Colts on Friday, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.
Impact: With D'Qwell Jackson under contract and Jerrell Freeman expected back this season, Irving doesn't project as a starter for the Colts. Assuming his health, Irving could, however, be the top backup at both inside linebacker spots, which would leave him one injury away from IDP relevance in deeper leagues. Irving recorded a career-high 46 tackles over just eight games in 2014, before a knee issue brought his season to an early end, further adding to Denver's injury woes at linebacker.
