With Tuesday being an off day, it's a very common day for teams to have free agents in for workouts, and that is certainly true of the Indianapolis Colts.  According to ESPN's Field Yates, one player that they had in for a workout was former Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still:

Of course, it is very important to note that the Colts work out a lot of players out without ever signing them, so just because they worked out Still doesn't mean that they will sign him.  Rather, it just shows that the Colts have enough interest to bring the player in for a closer look.

Still has received national attention as his daughter Leah courageously battles cancer.  He spent the past three seasons playing with the Cincinnati Bengals after being drafted in the second round of the 2012 draft out of Penn State.  During his time in Cincy, Still played in 30 games and recorded 40 tackles, 0.5 sacks, three passes defensed, and a forced fumble.  He was waived as a part of the final roster cutdowns this year.

The Colts reportedly have an open spot, as reports this afternoon said that they waived-injured running back Vick Ballard. So it sounds like the roster spot is open if they do have interest in signing Still, who would help address a position without much experience.  The starting trio of Kendall Langford, David Parry, and Henry Anderson looked good on Sunday for the Colts, but their depth along the defensive line is still questionable.  They claimed T.Y. McGill off of waivers from the Seahawks and traded for Billy Winn from the Browns, showing that they are still looking into adding help and open to exploring their options.  The other two defensive linemen on the roster are Earl Okine and Zach Kerr.
