New Colts head coach Chuck Pagano raided the Ravens' coaching staff this week, hiring Marwan Maalouf as his special-teams coordinator, Roy Anderson as safeties coach and Alfredo Roberts to coach the tight ends.

The way we hear it, don't be surprised when Pagano targets at least one Ravens free agent to bolster his "D."

How the LB corps shapes up this season will be fascinating. Can Robert Mathis, an unrestricted free agent whom the Colts would like to re-sign, play OLB? What about Dwight Freeney? Where do Pat Angerer and Kavell Conner fit in? Does MLB Gary Brackett still have a future in Indianapolis?

While it remains to be seen where all of these players fit in, one Ravens unrestricted free agent who certainly fit well in Pagano's "D" last season was OLB Jarret Johnson. A nine-year veteran, Johnson would be a nice addition to Pagano's unit, we hear.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb, a restricted free agent, could also receive interest from the Colts.
