    Colts DE Kendall Langford embracing 3-4 scheme

    Towering Colts defensive end and 2015 free agent addition Kendall Langford is not just thrilled to be with his new team. He is thrilled to be back in a defensive alignment he believes best suits his skill set. Langford chose Indianapolis in part because of its 3-4 scheme. "I like a good, old 3-4 defense," he told the team website. "I'm very comfortable with what we're doing. I feel like I'm back at home in a 3-4 scheme. I'm excited about it." Langford, who has has played in all 112 games with Miami and St. Louis since entering the NFL in 2008, has just 15.5 career sacks. But Chuck Pagano does not envision him as only a run-stopper. "He's shown in some of these 11-on-11 drills that he's got some pass rush capabilities, will get push inside," Pagano said.

    Pagano looking for Kendall Langford to help improve run defense

    Colts coach Chuck Pagano indicated the signing of defensive lineman Kendall Langford is an attempt to help shore up a defense that finished 18th against the run in 2014, per ESPN. Pagano also views Langford as a replacement for Cory Redding, who signed with the Cardinals. "I think right now you've got to look at him coming in and kind of filling that void where we lost C-Redd," Pagano said of Langford. "He's got position flexibility. He's a big, long, athletic type guy who's obviously very, very durable. You get a guy I think in base defense that can line up as your 5-technique (defender lines up on a tackle's outside shoulder) and give you good football at that position. In sub, he's a big guy that you can sit in the middle as a defensive tackle, and he can play the run as well on first and second [down] on run situations and then give you some pass rush inside."
