Colts coach Chuck Pagano will get a chance to dial up his favorite defensive looks in 2013. 

Blitzes, exotic packages, yes, Indianapolis will roll it all out next season.

 Pagano and general manager Ryan Grigson spoke to reporters Friday morning, less than 24 hours after completing the first phase of their second offseason by signing a seventh free agent.

 The class of newcomers includes two big linebackers in Lawrence Sidbury and Erik Walden, likely a new starting cornerback in Greg Toler, Pro Bowl safety LaRon Landry and Ricky Jean Francois, one of the most versatile defensive linemen on the market. 

What else did the Colts get? Two new pass protectors in tackle Gosder Cherilus and guard Donald Thomas. 

It's a whole new look for the Colts.
