Kendall Langford had six total tackles and a sack in Sunday's win over Denver.
Langford has three sacks and is on a career-high pace for sacks and tackles as he's getting plenty of snaps on defense.
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.
“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.”
Langford spent the last three seasons with the Rams, racking up 51 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in 2014. He has played in 112 consecutive games, the longest active streak for defensive linemen, per the announcement.
