Colts FA Day One
The colts signed DE Arthur Jones to a 5 year, $33 million contract. If you guys have not watched Jones play, he played with Coach Pagano in Baltimore. He is a big strong lineman who has the ability to collapse the pocket and create pressure, but he specifically has the label of a quality run-stopper. Also, at 27 years of age, he is in the prime of his career. He knows what it takes to win of course. He played a crucial role in the Ravens Super Bowl run. This signing is awesome. Lets not forget about D'Qwell Jackson. He is a legit 3-4 inside LB. He understands his role because of the similar scheme in Cleveland. At 30 he brings the intensity and experience that this defense needs. Vontae Davis returns and I have to say, he did come at a pretty high price. The defense is starting to shape up. The colts need to look for a safety now though because of the loss of Antoine Bethea.
The colts also resigned Vinateri (which i really am not a fan of), Pat Mcaffe, and Ahmad Bradshaw. i was actually very happy that we resigned Bradshaw. He is a great RB with speed, strength and skill. I believe that he and Trent Richardson will make a great duo. the colts still need to get a center (or give C Khaled Holmes a chance), and maybe a receiver.
This Colts team is getting stronger by the year. They are making all of the right moves. i predict within 5 years, we will be hoisting the Lombardi trophy.
