HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on what the Colts get in DT-Anthony 'Booger' McFarland)

"We're happy about it.  I think we got ourselves a player.  There aren't many guys out there that can help you this way, that know exactly what you're doing and are also good players.  So we're happy to get that done, and Booger will start practicing tomorrow and I think he'll get right in the flow with us."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on if it is nice that there will be no learning curve for DT-Anthony McFarland)

"That was the thing that made it enticing to us, and obviously we value our draft choices, that's how we build our team normally.  It was a tough call I know for (Colts President) Bill (Polian) to give up a choice in the future.  But as he and I talked about it, that was the thing that made it enticing.  It wasn't, 'Hey, we're going to come in and teach this guy and we'll see how he does.'  We know exactly how he's going to play in this
