Pinter becomes 1st of Colts' 9 draft picks to sign contract

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts have signed offensive lineman Danny Pinter, the first of their nine draft picks.

Team officials made the announcement Tuesday. The deal is for four years and about $3.6 million.

The 6-foot-4, 306-pound offensive lineman was a fifth-round selection, No. 149 overall, after earning first-team All-Mid-American Conference honors at Ball State last season. Pinter left his home town of South Bend, Indiana, for Ball State after being recruited as a tight end.

He moved to offensive tackle in 2018 and now will compete for a job, likely as a guard, with the home-state Colts.
