Colts Bring Back Center Jeff Saturday w/ Three-Year Deal

Free agent center to be Jeff Saturday is going nowhere. The Colts have re-signed Saturday, this just a few hours before he would have hit the market. There was talk by Saturday of his desire to play for the Steelers, but instead he will stay protecting Peyton Manning in Indy.

Here is the tidbit about Saturday coming back from the Indy Star:

The Colts agreed to a new three-year contract with center Jeff Saturday tonight, averting losing a longtime offensive cornerstone. Consider it a case of beat-the-clock negotiations. Saturday, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, would have become an unrestricted free agent and hit the NFL’s open market at 12:01 Friday morning.
