INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis Colts have signed free agent offensive lineman Fahn Cooper.

He spent all of last season on the San Francisco 49ers practice squad. Indy is hoping the 6-foot-5, 306-pound swing lineman can help bolster an offensive line that struggled most of the first three months last season.

Cooper is capable of playing either guard or tackle and was with the 49ers in training camp as a rookie. The fifth-round pick was released during the final cut down in September and was later re-signed to the practice squad.

At Mississippi, Cooper was awarded the Kent Hull Trophy, which goes to the school’s top linemen.

New general manager Chris Ballard and coach Chuck Pagano are preparing for this week’s NFL’s annual scouting combine.
