Cory Redding follows Pagano to Indianapolis


ESPN’s Josina Anderson reports that the Colts have signed defensive end Cory Redding to a three-year contract. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the deal is worth $10.5 million over three seasons.

The Redding deal is another sign Dwight Freeney’s time in Indianapolis is close to expiration.

Redding, 31, is a 3-4 defensive end and played for new Colts head coach Chuck Pagano in Indianapolis. Primarily a run stopper at this stage of his career, Redding goes 6-foot-4 and about 300 pounds. He recorded 4.5 sacks and 43 tackles last season.

Freeney, who is on the trade block, recently hired an agent in anticipation of a move out of Indy.

    Liking the moves Grigson is making so far. Reggie, Redding, and Justice. If we can get a draft pick for Freeney I’ll be happy.

    That doesn’t bother me too much as a ravens fan, although I thought Cory was a solid player for us and a great guy that I wish nothing but the best for. I believe Pernell McPhee has a much higher upside than Redding ever had and it showed last year in his rookie season when he recorded 6 sacks. With a full offseason and time in the weight room, I see no reason why McPhee can’t be a pro bowler in time.

    “Redding, 31, is a 3-4 defensive end and played for new Colts head coach Chuck Pagano in Indianapolis.”

    Redding didn’t play for Pagano in Indianapolis. Both of them just got there. He played for him in Baltimore, though.

    I am beginning to think that people better check themselves a little when they say that Indy is going to be terrible for years while they rebuild.

    If Luck is any good, you’ve already got a productive tandem-in-the-making with Reggie Wayne.

    The Redding signing is strong, and Justice is underrated because most of America is remembering one embarrassing game.

    The era when it took forever to turn around a bad team are gone. There is no reason this team can’t be in playoff contention again in 2 years.

    Come to the Pats Freeney all you have to do is rush the qb that’s it.

    Redding is not that good he played for lions and is z very average player .freeny is better than him when injured n playing on one leg

    Yeah, if the Colts can get solid production from Carter-Brown at RB. Sign Jeff Saturday. Draft a NT. Get Hughes to play like a first round pick at his new position. Find a TE who can catch or a 3rd wide receiver.

    They may be able to win some football games.

    Those are a lot of ifs.

    Thanks Cory. Good luck in Indy.

    Solid professional ball player Redding is.
