The list of first-round holdouts continues to dwindle.

Colts tackle Anthony Castonzo agreed to terms Tuesday, according to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star. It’s unclear how the two sides settled their disagreement over guaranteed money.

That leaves five first-round holdouts, and they are all from the middle of the first round. Patriots tackle Nate Solder (No. 17), Chargers defensive tackle Corey Liuget (No. 18), Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara, Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor (No. 21), and Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan (No. 24) are still unsigned.

With Charlie Johnson in Minnesota, Castonzo looks likely to start as a rookie. He was expected to even if Johnson returned, but the Colts (and quarterback Peyton Manning’s neck) don’t have a safety net now.
