INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts have completed a new deal to keep receiver Reggie Wayne and have signed free agent defensive end Cory Redding.

Wayne's deal is for three years and $17.5 million.

Redding will rejoin head coach Chuck Pagano, his former defensive coordinator in Baltimore, in Indianapolis. Terms of Redding's deal were not released.

News of Wayne's contract leaked out Tuesday night, but the Colts waited to announce the move until he formally signed the deal Wednesday.

At 6-foot-4, 298 pounds, Redding gives the Colts a bigger defensive end -- the kind Pagano can start to build his 3-4 defensive scheme around. The Colts re-signed Pro Bowl end Robert Mathis last week and are reportedly shopping their other Pro Bowl end, Dwight Freeney.
