The #Colts have signed CB-Kenneth Acker.

With 40 career games (15 starts), Acker is the most experienced corner now on the roster.

Chris Ballard familiar with Acker from Kansas City.

Don't want him as a starter but I don't hate that we have some more experienced depthy options going into training camp.

Much like Desir, I think Aker is solid enough to cover a team's 3rd, 4th or 5th WR but I don't want him as a starter.

I hope one of our 1st / 2nd round picks is a CB to be a Day One starter opposite Wilson. While Moore played well last year as a UDFA, I don't want to just hand him the job in 2018.

Walk Worthy,

I don't know much about him but it seems like a decent signing. I would trust Ballard knows enough about him that he fits into the culture he's trying to build, and after losing Melvin, Acker adds at least depth, but possibly may even be able to start. Also frees up draft decisions to focus more on LBs, pass rush, and OL.
