STANFORD NOTES . . . Tight end Coby Fleener and quarterback Andrew Luck are officially teammates again, this time with the Indianapolis Colts. The former Stanford pass-catch duo hooked up again Wednesday when Fleener signed on. Fleener used his Twitter account to announce resolution of his contract. "I am happy to announce the @NFLColts and I have agreed to a contract! #gocolts," he tweeted. Specific financial details were not immediately available, but the NFL's rookie wage scale had set the parameters for Fleener, the Colts' second-round draft pick who went No. 34 overall. Fleener was slotted to receive a four-year, $5.3 million contract with a signing bonus of approximately $2.3 million.On coming to the Colts and working once again with Luck, Fleener said: "I think anytime you can go into a camp with someone you are familiar with, it's exciting." At Stanford last season, Fleener had 34 catches for 667 yards (a 19.6 average) plus 10 touchdowns. In 51 career games, he had 96 catches for 1,543 yards and 18 touchdowns . . . Former Stanford center Robin Lopez has been traded by Phoenix to New Orleans as part of a multiplayer deal on Wednesday. Lopez was drafted 15th overall by the Suns in 2008.
