Less than 24 hours after adding Pro Bowl safety LaRon Landry to the roster, the Indianapolis Colts struck two more deals, this time landing San Francisco defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois and re-signing cornerback Darius Butler. Terms of the deals were not immediately available.||||||| Butler was New England's second-round pick in 2009 and joined the Colts in September as a free agent. He wound up playing in 11 games, making four starts, picking off a career-high four interceptions and returning two for touchdowns. He will likely be in a backup role behind Vontae Davis, the former first-round pick Indy got in a trade with Miami just before last season's opening game, and the recently signed Toler.
