It's been a while, but the Colts may finally have a solid set of DBs to start the season. With their recent acquisition of Pro-Bowl safety LaRon Landry, Indianapolis is now primed to start Landry, Vontae Davis, Antoine Bethea, and … Greg Toler? Darius Butler?
So close, yet so far.
Landry was a Pro Bowl selection last season with the New York Jets, his first season in the AFC. He started 79 of 80 games over the previous five seasons with the Washington Redskins. Indy has made a concerted effort to upgrade the defense after switching from a traditional 4-3 scheme to coach Chuck Pagano's preferred 3-4 front last season.
To be honest, I'm willing to give Bulter another chance. He's not as solid as they need him to be yet, but he can step up when given the opportunity; moreover, he'll be asked to do less than last season if Davis and Toler can stay healthy. Most importantly, with an immediately stronger secondary, the Colts will be able to pressure the quarterback a little more than last season.
