Indianapolis Colts: 15 best free agent acquisitions of all-time
Montae Reagor is a forgotten defensive lineman for the Colts. He was pretty solid when he was with them. He came over from the Detroit Lions in the 2003 season and was able to provide some stability to a run-porous defensive line. Reagor helped change the Colts’ play.
The Colts had problems stopping the run all throughout the 2000s. Reagor was brought in to help fix that problem. Fix that problem he did. He started all four years that he was with the Colts and made sure that the defensive line was a little more stout against the run.
Of course, the problem of run defense didn’t really get stopped until Bob Sanders was drafted and was inserted into the starting lineup. But that wasn’t because of Reagor’s play. He amassed 21 tackles for loss while he played in Indianapolis. A large amount of that was in the running game.
Reagor is mostly forgotten because he played on the same defensive line as Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis, who were much more accomplished. But Reagor played his role well while he was in Indianapolis. That can’t be said for a lot of players.
While Reagor may not have been the most accomplished, he played his role well. He did that much like the next person on this list.
