INDIANAPOLIS – It's the offseason, so Colts.com takes a look at some tweets from Colts players to get an idea of what they are up to during their down time.
Count Vontae Davis as a fan of Chris Ballard's speaking publically on the need for improving the pass rush. Ballard has stressed how important he believes it is to form relationships with players, even if the GM is mostly behind the scenes. Earlier this week Ballard said he was going to meet with Andrew Luck. Expect Ballard to make the rounds with the rest of the guys in the coming weeks/months.
With Morten Andersen, who attended Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis, going into Canton, Adam Vinatieri is the next kicker expected to be inducted. Vinatieri likely needs another two years before he breaks Andersen's kicking records for most field goals in a career and most points scored. The 2017 Hall of Fame class included two running backs (LaDainian Tomlinson and Terrell Davis), which should be good news for Edgerrin James being pushed up the waiting list.
Just another ho-hum week for Adam Vinatieri. Last Friday, Vinatieri set a Guinness Book of World Record. Then on Monday, he received the highest honor an Indiana citizen can obtain. When the Colts get back together for work in mid-April, Vinatieri will begin working with a new holder for the first time since 2008.
Super Bowl LI (52) will be heading to Minneapolis in 2018. New U.S. Bank Stadium, where the Colts dismantled the Vikings in Week 15 of the season, will host the Super Bowl in its second year of existence. When the Colts traveled to Minnesota in mid-December, the temperature was hovering around negative 20 degrees. Unlike in Houston last week, the skywalks of Minneapolis will be used A LOT next February.
