The Indianapolis Colts have strengthened their offense exceptionally well in the off-season.

The Colts managed to bring in former Miami Hurricane teammates Frank Gore and Andre Johnson to give a huge boost to their running back and wide receiver corps, respectively, while they used their first round pick on another star from The U, wideout Phillip Dorsett.

Indy haven't paid much attention to their defense and didn't give it any huge boosts, apart from Trent Cole, but they are looking to change that now after trading for a young linebacker.

The Colts are trading a late-round draft pick to the Raiders for linebacker Sio Moore, both teams announced Friday night.

Moore, a third-round pick in 2013, started 22 games in two seasons with the Raiders and should get an immediate chance to contribute with the Colts, who need help at linebacker and on defense in general.

Moore has never played in a 3-4 defense but he had 3 sacks last season and 4.5 as a rookie. It’s unclear which position he’ll play with the Colts or where he’ll fit in a linebacker corps that’s probably not settled.

The 25-year old Liberian played his college football at Connecticut and was a third round pick by the Raiders in the 2013 Draft, 66th overall.
