The Indianapolis Colts agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent inside linebacker Nate Irving on Friday.

The 6-foot-1, 245-pound Irving spent the past four seasons with the Denver Broncos, where he totaled 104 tackles, two sacks, two passes defensed and 22 special teams stops in 54 regular-season appearances (12 starts). In six playoff games (three starts), he recorded nine tackles and one pass defensed.

Last season, Irving started the first eight games and posted a career-high 44 tackles with one sack before being placed on injured reserve Nov. 13 after tearing his ACL.

In 2013, Irving started four of 15 regular-season games and opened all three postseason contests in the Broncos’ run to Super Bowl XLVIII. In 2012, he tied for the team lead with 10 special teams tackles.

Irving was originally selected by Denver in the third round (67th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft out of North Carolina State.
