Given the doom-laden prophecies laid out for the Colts upon the release of Peyton Manning, it'd be easy to slip into retrospectives and think about what we had and have lost. This situation would've been compounded if the front office hadn't taken a sharp approach to free agency. Fortunately for us all, it appears that they have - focusing primarily on the offensive and defensive lines, little surprise given Chuck Pagano's stated intent to make the football team stronger and larger, with an emphasis on running the football.
One of Pagano's acquisitions to aid the transition is Cory Redding, a 5-technique DE in the 3-4 alignment with the versatility to kick inside and play tackle. Given his status as one of the better free agents available for a team such as the Colts (with salary cap restraints and such), I'd like to delve into his play last year to see exactly what he can bring to the Colts in terms of playmaking ability and penetration.
Without further ado, I'd like to begin..
