Colts add free agent Justin Houston to defensive line

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard kept insisting he would be judicious in free agency.

For two-plus years, he was. On Wednesday, a week after the first big wave of signings, Ballard opened his checkbook and made the biggest acquisition of his tenure by adding defensive end Justin Houston.

Ballard didn't just add a proven pass rusher, he brought in someone he knew well from his days in Kansas City, someone he believes fits the Colts' young locker room, and a player who can still be effective when taking on extra blockers. Houston considered it the perfect combination for his skills.
