    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky The Colts deserve credit for making a move to add a veteran who might be able to help them better stop the run.
    [​IMG]McCargo There were rumblings back in training camp that the Bills were looking to move John McCargo, a defensive tackle my AFC East colleague Tim Graham said developed a reputation in Buffalo for being uninterested in working to be great.
    McCargo was the 26th pick overall in 2006 out of North Carolina State. Indianapolis acquired him for an undisclosed draft pick.
    He's listed at 6-foot-2 and 307 pounds, which makes him the Colts' second-heaviest defensive tackle behind only Daniel Muir (312), who's been inactive for all five games this season.
    President Bill Polian has said size alone won't solve his team's interior line issues, that they needed size with skill.
    It took only a little over two seasons for the Bills to give up on McCargo. The Colts will hope a change of scenery and working under defensive line coach John Teerlinck might bring out some of the qualities that helped McCargo get drafted so high.
