The Indianapolis Colts have plenty of holes to fill this offseason.They need players both on offense, where a second wide receiver and offensive linemen are still drastically needed, and defense, where every position deserves an upgrade.
With the plethora of deficiencies and an incredibly high $40-plus million in cap space for 2013, Colts fans, bloggers and beat writers have begun their speculation.
While offensive linemen, defensive backs and pass-rushing outside linebackers have gotten a lot of discussion among this speculation, the defensive line has been overlooked by most.
But no matter what the Twitter talk is, the defensive line has to be addressed over the next two months. The Colts defensive line was abysmal in 2012, a big reason why the Colts were one of the league's worst defenses against the run. The lack of interior pass rush was also a factor in the outside linebacker's failures in getting to the quarterback, as the Colts failed to collapse the pocket far too often.
With the state of the current roster in dire straits, here are a few potential free-agent targets for the defensive line. None of these players will single-handedly fix the problem, but the Colts need to continue building their new 3-4 defense by finding pieces where they can.
