INDIANAPOLIS (WISH/AP) - The free agency period is under way and the Colts are very active in the market.
The Colts have agreement in principle that has been reached with the following players:
Gosder Cherilus OT Detroit
Greg Toler DB Arizona
Erik Walden LB Green Bay
Donald Thomas OG New England
Lawrence Sidbury LB Atlanta
The addition of Cherilus, a 6-foot-7, 325-pound right tackle fills a major need on the offensive line for the Colts.
Indy went into free agency roughly $40 million under the salary cap looking first to firm up an offensive line that allowed Andrew Luck to be sacked 41 times and get hit dozens more.
Cherilus was Detroit's first-round draft pick in 2008 and played every snap except one last season at right tackle for the Lions.
