The Colts continued to add more depth to their defensive line, signing DE Tyler Brayton. They also released DT DeMario Pressley on Tuesday.

Pressley did not play last season. In seven games with the Saints in '09, he recorded 15 tackles. He had been out with a hamstring injury.

Brayton, an eighth-year veteran, spent the last three seasons with the Panthers after beginning his career in 2003 with Oakland. Brayton played in 15 games with 14 starts last season, recording 22 tackles and two passes defensed. He has 15½ career sacks.

Brayton signed a one-year contract. The Colts previously signed veterans Tommie Harris and Jamaal Anderson to beef up their D-line.
