Tyquan Lewis is staying in Indianapolis.

The former Ohio State defensive end is re-signing with the Indianapolis Colts on a one-year, $3 million deal, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Lewis has spent his entire NFL career in Indianapolis since the Colts selected him with the final pick of the second round in the 2018 NFL draft. In four seasons with the Colts, Lewis has appeared in 41 games with 12 starts and has recorded 56 total tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks and five pass deflections.

The start of his NFL career has been plagued by injuries, including last season, when he suffered a season-ending knee injury while running with the ball on the first interception of his career. Nonetheless, the Colts have decided to keep him around on their defensive line – where he’s seen playing time at both end and tackle – for at least one more year.

Lewis is the fourth former Ohio State player to strike a deal since the NFL’s free-agent negotiating period opened on Monday, following Jamarco Jones, Malik Hooker and Jake McQuaide. Jones is the only Buckeye to sign with a new team so far this week, as he’s going from the Seattle Seahawks to the Tennessee Titans, while Hooker and McQuaide both re-signed with the Dallas Cowboys.
