The Indianapolis Colts have made some free agency moves this offseason that would make their former general manager, Bill Polian, grumble and squirm in his chair like a man in dire need of Preparation H. Polian often chose to ignore free agency and preferred to build through the draft. That concept helped the Colts win seven division titles, two AFC Championships and a Super Bowl during his tenure.
After a 2-14 season, The Colts said goodbye to many of their core veterans and made massive changes in the front office and on the sideline. With their new coach Chuck Pagano comes a new philosophy on offense and defense. Taking all of that in to account, the Colts had to dip into free agency to even field a team.
New general manager Ryan Grigson began work on the rebuilding process immediately. He re-signed Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis. (On a side note, Polian almost always resigned vets that came up through the Colts organization. Almost to a fault.) He added Cory Redding, Winston Justice (trade), Tom Zbikowski, Mike McGlynn, Samson Satele and Brandon McKinney, among others.
The majority of free agents are off the market, and the draft is now less than a week away, but there are still some free agents out there that could help the Colts through this rebuilding process.
