INDIANAPOLIS – What did Colts players have to say this week with Training Camp just a week away?
It remains to be seen when we will see Robert Mathis back on the field, but his head coach obviously has high hopes for the Colts all-time sack leader. There's no denying the dertermination of Mathis to prove people wrong this year. If his body cooperates physically, and Mathis gets close to the player we saw in 2013, the Colts pass rush should rank among the top units in the NFL with guys like Trent Cole and Jonathan Newsome also coming off the edge.
It started earlier this week and will continue for the next seven days. Colts players are returning to the Indianapolis area with Training Camp move in coming a week from Saturday. The Colts will be in Anderson for a two full weeks this year, before returning to their facility to scrimmage the Bears on August 19, 20.
This time last year Adams entered Training Camp, getting his first true work with the Colts. By the end of camp, he was a starter. By the end of the season, Adams was a Pro Bowler. Now, in 2015, Adams has to be a vocal leader while providing stability at the back end of a veteran Colts secondary.
Trades in the NFL are a rarity compared to other sports, however this one couldn't have worked out much better for the Colts and Davis. At the age of 20, Davis was drafted in the first-round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. A 2012 trade for Davis has rejuvenated his career in Indianapolis, highlighted by a Pro Bowl appearance last season.
