A look at Colts' 2014 opponent FA signings

By Mike Wells

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts have said a number of times that they know about the moves other teams in the NFL have made during free agency. They also noted that they're not letting other team's moves dictate what they do.

“Everybody's going to approach free agency and try to better their teams however they feel necessary,” coach Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “We really focus on what we have to do to get better. We're not really concerned. We keep an eye on things, certainly in your own conference. But our focus is on us trying to make ourselves better.”

Denver and New England have been two of the most talked about teams when it comes to free-agent moves. But the Broncos and Patriots aren't the only two opponents the Colts face in 2014 that have been active in free agency. Washington and Baltimore have been active, too, with the addition of receivers DeSean Jackson and Steve Smith, respectively.

Here's a look at each of the Colts' 2014 opponents and the free agents they've signed that were with other teams last season with at least a ‘C' grade by Bill Polian in his FA tracker.
