The Colts were one of the surprise teams on 2012, and they’re one of the most aggressive so far in 2013.

According to multiple reports, the Colts have agreed to a deal with Lions tackle Gosder Cherilus, and are visiting with safety LaRon Landry. They’re also reported to be in pursuit of Lions defensive end Cliff Avril.

As you might imagine, this has owner Jim Irsay excited.

Landing Cherilus will help them protect quarterback Andrew Luck, which should have been their first priority.

UPDATE 5:31 P.M. ET: Irsay also tweets that they’ve agreed with Cardinals cornerback Greg Toler and Packers linebacker Erik Walden, in addition to Cherilus.
