Colts sign pair for OL, 1 defender

March 11, 1994|By From Staff Reports

The Baltimore CFL Colts announced the signing of two beefy offensive linemen and a cornerback yesterday, bringing the roster of signees to 12.

Joining the Canadian Football League expansion team will be offensive guard Dietrich Lockridge (6 feet 3, 292 pounds) of Jackson State, offensive tackle Shahriar Pourdanesh (6-6, 290) of Nevada-Reno and cornerback Tony Tellington of Youngstown State.

The 5-9 Tellington, who doubles as a kick returner, spent the 1992 season on the Miami Dolphins' practice squad. Lockridge was a Kodak first-team All-American in 1991, and Pourdanesh allowed just two sacks in 40 career starts in Reno.

The Colts also hired Tracy Solem as equipment manager. Solem, who held the same position for the University of North Dakota the last seven years, worked with Colts coach Don Matthews with the Orlando Thunder in the World League.
