At 28 years old, Neal is still a solid defensive player. He is athletic enough to play outside linebacker or defensive end. While Neal’s 13.5 sacks over the last three seasons are not stellar, his versatility would help the Colts' defense a lot.

While he is not a pass rusher, Upshaw is younger than any outside linebacker the Colts currently have. Upshaw was also coached by new defensive coordinator Ted Monachino with the Baltimore Ravens. This signing would make sense for both sides.
