Monitor Mike DeVito:

Currently a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, Mike DeVito is expected to be asked to take a paycut from his $5.4 million cap hit in 2015, although his team could ultimately save $4 million by releasing him. While DeVito suffered a Week 1 season-ending torn achilles injury this past year, he’s just one season removed from a very productive year with the Chiefs.

According to ProFootballFocus, DeVito was the 4th best 3-4 defensive end against the run in 2013 with a +16.4 grade in run defense. Always regarded for his strong leadership and only turning 31 years old in June, DeVito could be worth a flyer as a potential strong veteran rebound candidate for the Colts in 2015 given his run-stuffing prowess.
