Cornerback Pierre Desir has agreed to a three-year, $25 million deal to stay with the Indianapolis Colts, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Indy had not yet made an official statement.

Desir started 12 of 16 games last season and finished with 79 tackles, two forced fumbles and one interception.

He is the second cornerback to re-sign with Indy. Earlier Wednesday, the Colts gave cornerback Chris Milton a one-year contract extension.

Indy also is expected to sign receiver Devin Funchess shortly after the official opening of free agency. Funchess spent his first four seasons in the league with Carolina.
