Will Pagano take Ravens' free agents?
By Jamison Hensley
Former Baltimore defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano is expected to bring a Ravens-style defense to Indianapolis. He could be taking some Ravens players along with him, as well.
Ravens free-agent defensive end Cory Redding is engaged with talks with the Colts, and is scheduled to visit Indianapolis tonight, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. This could just be the beginning for Pagano, who might also target linebackers Jarret Johnson and Jameel McClain.
Losing Redding would not be a critical blow to the Ravens, even though the nine-year veteran had his best season in years. Redding finished with 43 tackles and 4.5 sacks.
The Ravens have been prepared to replace Redding with two emerging young prospects in Pernell McPhee and Art Jones.
