Colts Sign Free Agent Defensive End Cory Redding

The Indianapolis Colts have a new regime running their front office for the first time in fourteen years, and it's obvious that these new guys are doing things a different way. Unlike Bill Polian, who despised free agency almost as much as he hated the fans of the team he worked for, new G.M. Ryan Grigson actually (gasp!) likes signing free agents!

After trading for tackle Winston Justice earlier today, the Colts have signed free agent defensive end Cory Redding to a three-year, $10.5 million dollar deal, per Adam Schefter. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano worked with Redding in Baltimore when Pagano was the defensive coordinator there.

The signing of Redding likely means Dwight Freeney's days in Indianapolis are numbered. With the Colts looking to shift to a 3-4 look on defense, adding the 6'4, 300 pound Redding as a DE makes sense. Keeping Freeney (6'1, 265) does not.

Redding had one of his best seasons last year, earning 4.5 sacks and 43 combined tackles.
