Colts still need center, safety, receiver

By Mike Wells

INDIANAPOLIS -- Cornerback? Check

Defensive lineman? Another check.

Kicker? Check, too.

Added depth at running back? A surprising check.

Receiver, guard and center? It's time to stop there.

You can't take care of everything in one day.

The Indianapolis Colts took care of pressing needs on defense by signing defensive lineman Arthur Jones and cornerback Vontae Davis to go with the ageless kicker Adam Vinatieri and running back Ahmad Bradshaw.

Now it's time for the Colts to continue their free-agent pursuit for a safety after Antoine Bethea bolted for San Francisco, a starting center and a receiver.

There was a lot of wheeling and dealing being done on the first day of free agency Tuesday. A lot of safeties were taken off the market, too, leaving the Colts with limited options to choose from at that position.

I checked out Bill Polian's free-agent tracker to see who are the top remaining free agents at safety, center and receiver.
