Colts sign QB Scott Tolzien at backup

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts have agreed to terms with quarterback Scott Tolzien to fill the backup QB role after the team moved on from Matt Hasselbeck.

The team said last month it would not renew Hasselbeck's contract. The 40-year-old played eight games last season after Andrew Luck suffered a series of injuries. Hasselbeck threw for 1,690 yards and nine touchdowns during those games.
