The Indianapolis Colts are continuing their active approach to NFL free agency and have just announced the signing of their latest new addition. According to reports, the Colts have come to agreements with former San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois.
Per Adam Caplan:
Ricky Jean Francois agreed to a 4 year, $22 M deal with the Colts, per source.

Francois is expected to start at the No. 1 defensive end position for Indianapolis this coming season. This may be a little under the radar signing for the Colts now that the first 48 hours of free agency have passed and the rapid spending has started to slow down, but it could end up paying off for the Colts once the season begins.
