Colts vice chairman Bill Polian hinted late last season that his club could be more active pursuing other teams' free agents this offseason. Although the Colts didn't exactly set the world on fire with their free-agent moves, they did add several players who fit what they do well and have intriguing upside. Among the additions is former Falcons DE Jamaal Anderson, the eighth overall pick in the 2007 draft. Anderson was widely regarded as a bust in Atlanta, mustering only 4 ½ sacks in his first four seasons. But he wasn't brought to the Colts to be a pass rusher; his main responsibility in Indianapolis will be to spell Pro Bowl DEs Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis on obvious run downs. We hear Anderson could be a new version of former Colt Raheem Brock. The versatile Brock, who played inside and outside, was occasionally dropped from tackle into pass coverage. At 6-foot-6, Anderson also could be very effective crowding passing lanes.
