The Colts need a safety. Two, in fact. With the release of LaRon Landry, there isn’t anyone on the roster capable of starting. The draft may be viable option for filling one of the spots, but bringing back the soon-to-be 34-year-old on a short-term deal would be a smart move by Ryan Grigson, and the Indianapolis GM indicated he hopes to do just that.

Sign David Harris from the Jets
Indianapolis needs help at inside linebacker. Harris, 31, isn’t a long-term solution, but the Colts are in win-now mode. Harris recorded 123 tackles and 5.5 sacks for the Jets last season. The former second-round pick would help shore up the middle of Greg Manusky’s defense.

Sign Frank Gore from San Francisco
49ers GM Trent Baalke has indicated he'd like to bring Gore back to San Francisco, but if the five-time Pro Bowl running back hits the open market, he'd be a great fit for Colts. Gore will be 32 by the time the season starts, but he is still plenty capable of getting it done as his 1,106-yard 2014 season proved. He'd be a great complement to an Andrew Luck-led offense in Indianapolis.

Sign Pernell McPhee from Baltimore
With the release of Ricky Jean Francois, defensive line is a glaring area of need for the Colts. McPhee has been generating a lot of buzz in the buildup to free agency, and early indications are he may be a luxury the Ravens can’t afford to retain. Indianapolis would be wise to grab him if the bidding doesn't get out of control.

Sign Mike Iupati from San Francisco
The Colts offensive line needs an overhaul and the three-time Pro Bowl guard would be an immediate upgrade. Iupati is one of the NFL's top guards, and his presence would help solidify Indy's offensive line. Indianapolis has enough money to go out and get at least two big names this year. Iupati should be one of them.
