Last month, the Colts raided the Saskatchewan Roughriders for linebacker Jerrell Freeman. The Colts have now swiped another CFL defender, this one from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
The Colts have announced the addition of defensive end Justin Hickman, who spent three years in Hamilton. He started all 18 games in 2011, notching 13.0 sacks and landing a nomination for Most Outstanding Defensive Player.
The Colts also re-signed defensive back Mike Newton, who was waived/injured by the Colts in August 2011. Newton appeared in 12 games for the Colts in 2010, playing special teams and reserve defensive back.
