New Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard continues to add reinforcements for a defense in desperate need of an overhaul.
A star on HBO's Hard Knocks, the native Estonian rarely lived up to his Eastern Block moniker over four years in Cincinnati. On the plus side, the 2013 second-round draft pick did emerge as a solid run defender in a rotational role last season.
Through waves of bad luck, ill-advised free-agent splurges and wasted draft picks, Indianapolis' defense had grown stale over the past half-decade under Ryan Grigson's watch. Ballard is off to a nice start in his effort to renovate on the fly.
