INDIANAPOLIS – How eager are Colts players to return to work on Monday, April 20?
The Pacers season came to a close on Wednesday night after an impressive late playoff push. Colts players, including McAfee, are frequent visitors to Pacers game and Robert Mathis had a front row seat to home finale on Tuesday night. Mathis typically hosts a charity softball event with Roy Hibbert in the summer, with many Colts and Pacers players attending.
We are less than a couple of days away from "football" work beginning back up again at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center. The Colts will start their eight-week offseason program on Monday with the beginning of Phase One. The two-week phase consists of strength and rehabilitation and weight room activity.
The return of the "4th Down Army" in 2015 shouldn't be taken for granted. The Colts coaching staff sleeps easy at night knowing that Matt Overton, Pat McAfee and Adam Vinatieri are back for another season together. An improved return unit is about the only thing missing from the elite special teams units.
It's been a busy offseason for Colts safety Mike Adams. The 34-year-old Adams spent some time a few weeks back working at a radio station in Washington D.C. This past week he hit the national audience at the NFL Network. Adams is one of the Colts more interesting quotes so his presence in front of the camera could definitely be in his future.
