Colts sign CFL linebacker in hopes of finding pass rusher

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts have signed Canadian Football League star Alex Bazzie to a reserve-future contract.

The 6-foot-2, 240-pound outside linebacker had 29 sacks and 83 tackles in 50 games with the BC Lions. Last season, Bazzie had 11 sacks in 18 games and was a West Division All-Star.

With Indy's career leader in sacks, Robert Mathis, retiring and last season's sacks leader, Erik Walden, set to become a free agent, the Colts need pass rushers. Walden and Mathis combined for 16 of the team's 33 sacks in 2016.
