The Indianapolis Colts continue to look all over the place for players who might be able to come in and contribute, and that is certainly true when it comes to the pass rush - one of the biggest areas of weakness for Indianapolis.

According to Yahoo Sports’ Eric Edholm, the Colts today worked out former Jaguars pass rusher Ryan Davis:

Davis was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jaguars in 2012, and he has played in 38 games for the team before getting cut recently. He has recorded 34 career tackles, eleven sacks, three passes defensed, an interception, and three forced fumbles. In 2014 he recorded 6.5 sacks and two forced fumbles, while last year he racked up 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

He has had some flashes as a pass rusher, and the Colts are desperate for help at the area. They’re counting on veterans Robert Mathis and Trent Cole to provide the bulk of the pass rush, and they will also need to get creative at generating pressure from other areas. Adding Ryan Davis wouldn’t solve any of the issues, but it would add a piece that might be able to help in certain situations. Because of that, it’s certainly worth looking into for the Colts, and it sounds like they’re doing just that as they worked out Davis today.
