Colts Interested In CFL Standout DT Armond Armstead, Former USC Trojan

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Colts one of three teams interested in the former USC product.

You obviously have to hand it to Ryan Grigson, Colts general manager. Less than a week after his team was bounced from the playoffs, he's still working to make the 2013 roster even better.

Adam Schefter of ESPN has reported that the Colts, along with the Patriots and Eagles, are interested in the services of one Armon Armstead, a 300 lbs DT who played in the CFL last year. Armstead visited Indianapolis last week, and will make his decision this week as to who he will sign with.

Armstead's story is interesting. Per Schefter's report, which pulls info from ESPNLosAngeles.com's Pedro Moura, Armstead played in the CFL because he needed to prove to NFL teams that he could hold-up. The poor kid suffered A HEART ATTACK at age 20 due, he claims, to being injected with painkillers 10 times over a period of a few weeks during his 2010 season at USC. Armstead is suing USC, and in the suit he claims he was injected sometimes twice a day with the anti-inflammatory drug known as Toradol. Other anti-inflammatory drugs were administered "in a quantity and frequency that exceeded maximum dosage guidelines, recommendations and restrictions," per USA Today, via HuffPo.

Apparently, these injections were mandatory, which is so insane I have no words other than, "Lane Kiffin is a total scumbag!"

Hopefully, Armstead picks the Colts because he seems like a kid worth rooting for. He had 43 tackles, 6 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles playing for the Toronto Argonauts last season.

Ryan Grigson has shown a knack for finding CFL talent. Jerrell Freeman, the Colts leading tackler in 2012, also came from Canada.
