The Indianapolis Colts signed outside linebacker Tarell Basham on Friday.

Basham, who was a third-round pick in last month's draft, recorded 158 tackles, a school-record 29.5 sacks and five forced fumbles during his 51-game career at Ohio University.

The 6-foot-4, 262-pounder was named the 2016 Mid-American Conference Defensive Player of the Year after leading the conference with 11.5 sacks last season.

With the signing of Basham, the Colts have all eight of their picks from the 2017 draft under contract.
