I don't know Muir specifically, but if you guys are really staying with a 3-4 front then I can't imagine that ANYONE from the Colts defensive front would be a good fit. The Colts have been consistently bad against the run for years, and have nearly always had a heavy speed emphasis in their front line, with a lack of mass. This wouldn't be a good fit for the 3-4 front, unless Muir is the exception?! He measures at 6'2" and 320 lbs, so he's certainly not a massive DT.
Here's the report I got from The Sporting News.
Sat Jan 19, 2013 3:55 pm Chiefs signed DT Daniel Muir to a reserve/future contract.
Fantasy Source Spin: Muir's signing is the first of new GM John Dorsey's tenure. Muir played three games with the Jets in 2012 after spending four seasons with the Colts. The 29-year-old will be fighting for a backup job in training camp.
Right now there are way to many holes on this team to go blowing up the 3-4 scheme without putting some priority resources into fitting guys into the 4-3 scheme. The defense was the one solid block this team had last year so the defense will remain 3-4.
Right now the Chiefs are looking to fix the offensive immediately, and in my opinion only, pick up pieces here and there to transition to the 4-3 so that future drafts can be directed at changing a defense to Reid's desire.
This signing is pointing to a 4-3 defense,

I dont think you can look at one guy that will be fighting for a roster spot and say that is a sign of what defense they will be running in the near future. You may be correct about staying 3-4 for now and slowly transitioning for the future, but we need more evidence to say that is the case. I believe Reid has said we will be running a 3-4, so for now that is what we will be running.

he reaffirms we will still be a base 3-4 defense with added variations and does explain it very well...excellent reading!
Yes, you are right. I am basing my opinion on a very weak hunch. Nothing more.
