STATS, LLC PLAYER NEWS

Posted March 14, 2013
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. The latest moves are intended to help revamp a traditionally undersized defense that has played a secondary role to quarterbacks Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck and the offense in recent years.||||||| Francois is a 6-foot-3, 295-pound defensive lineman who some believed was the only free agent capable of playing all three defensive line positions in the 3-4 defense Indianapolis switched to last season. He's played previously for Colts defensive coordinator Greg Manusky.
