Colts prepare for free agency

Colts general manager Ryan Grigson has a new perspective on free agency.

Instead of cutting guys to clear room, he has more than $40 million to spend, and he intends to put that money to use.

While Grigson didn't outline a specific game plan for free agency, he is dropping hints. If there's a choice, he says he would rather play with a rookie cornerback than a rookie offensive lineman. The Colts could use help in both areas and have expressed concerns over keeping Andrew Luck upright after he took 41 sacks last season.

Grigson also says the reason Indianapolis chose not to re-sign the 33-year-old Dwight Freeney or oft-injured receiver Austin Collie is because they didn't fit into Indy's future plans.
