Why not James Harrison

This idea has been rattling around my brain for a few weeks now. Two years of James harrison? I could live with that. 

First off he plays left outside linebacker, giving Mathis the ability to stay on the side he's most comfortable at. Harrison brings that tough/mean streak to a team that was widely known for having a "soft" defense. I believe teams need a little bit of that grit to be successful. His 6 sacks last year was on par with freeney so at worst ,statistically speaking, we'd be just as good if not better (with all the improvements we made to the D Line) than last year. By signing harrison, it potentially fixes the pass rush, allowing Grigson to draft the best available player instead of picking out of need. 

Harrison's off the field issues are the only thing that concern me. Since we picked up Walden (who was arrested last year for domestic abuse) the colts integrity has been compromised so why not pick up someone who can actually help the defense. I'd take a 15yd penalty every once I'm a while to make a player hesitate before coming to his side of the field. Big hits fire up the defence and gets the crowd involved thus leading to more stops.

Pride seems to be one of harrison's prime motivators. He thinks he's worth top dollar and the lack of interest from teams is probably maddening. He'll probably want to prove everyone wrong and I hope he does it in Indy.
