The 32-year-old suffered a season-ending bicep injury in 2014 after starting eight games, but his versatility will be an asset to the Colts. He was part of an Eagles offensive line that became dominant in 2013 although their play dropped off in 2014 due to injuries.
Herremans expressed his thoughts on signing with the Colts.
“It was a different experience for me going through trying to find a whole new team. Indy seems like a good fit for me and a good opportunity to start. I want to compete for a Super Bowl. I’ve been close before but never quite close enough,” Herremans said to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
Herremans will add depth to a Colts offensive line that has mostly struggled at the beginning of quarterback Andrew Luck’s career.
They will enter the 2015 season as a frontrunner to win the AFC. However, they will need to overcome the New England Patriots, who have demolished them in their past three games.
