INDIANAPOLIS – On Monday, Robert Mathis returned to the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center.

On Tuesday, it was announced that Mathis would continue to call the Colts complex home through the 2016 season.

The Colts extended Mathis' contract an additional year, through the 2016 season, which will be his 14th in the NFL (all in Indianapolis).

Mathis, who is currently on the Colts Reserve/Non-Football Injury list, is in the process of starting a strenuous Achilles rehab.

If Mathis plays through his contract, he will have played 14 years with the Colts, which would tie him with Peyton Manning for the second most in team history.

Below are a few of the career highlights for the guy who has gone from the No. 138th pick in the 2003 NFL Draft to the Colts all-time sack leader:

  • Named to six consecutive Pro Bowls (2008-2013).
  • Voted a 2013 Associated Press and *Sporting News *First Team NFL All-Pro selection for the first time in his career.
  • In 2013, won the Deacon Jones Award as the NFL's sack leader with 19.5.
  • Became the franchise all-time sack leader (111.0) and single season sack leader with his sack against Houston on Dec. 15, 2013. Following his multiple-sack game against Jacksonville on Dec. 29, 2013, set a team single-season record for sacks with 19.5.
  • Named the team's recipient of the 2011 Ed Block Courage Award.
