INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -The Indianapolis Colts expect starting guard Jake Scott to return next season. They'll lose cornerback Jason David unless they match an offer made to him by the New Orleans Saints.
New Orleans signed David, a restricted free agent, to the offer sheet Thursday.
If the Colts don't match it by next Friday, David will go to the Saints and Indianapolis will receive one of New Orleans' three fourth-round picks in the draft as compensation.
Scott planned to sign his one-year tender Thursday, keeping him with the Super Bowl champions in 2007. The three-year veteran from Idaho has started on the right side the past two seasons.
His agent, Ken Staninger, said other teams were interested, but Scott wanted to stay with the Colts. Another team could have signed Scott, giving the Colts the option to match it or receive a second-round draft pick as compensation.
The Colts have two other unsigned restricted free agents: end Josh Thomas, a key player in the defensive line rotation, and kick returner Terrence Wilkins.
Indianapolis already has lost two starters from its Super Bowl defense, including the other starting cornerback, Nick Harper, who signed with Tennessee last month. Linebacker Cato June signed with Tampa Bay. The Colts also lost safety Mike Doss when he signed with Minnesota two weeks ago.
