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.
Like the Colts did with Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne, the Colts went to the side of Lucas Oil Stadium to thank Robert Mathis. Retirement beckons for Mathis after 14 seasons and 123.5 career sacks. Mathis, the franchise's all-time sack leader, will be watching Sunday's NFC Championship with major rooting interest for fellow "quarterback hater" Dwight Freeney.
The question posed to Butler was if he would be willing to play free safety going forward. Butler is more than willing, which shouldn't be a surprise after how sound he was back there in 2016. That's why Butler is a rather attractive 30-year-old free agent in 2017.
It was an up and down 2016 season for Davis, as he battled a variety of injuries to play in 14 games. The 2017 season will be the fourth and final for Davis on the contract he signed back in 2014. Davis, 28, has to get back to his Pro Bowl level for this defense to make the needed strides next season. With Davis entering a contract year, finding a future top-flight cornerback could come in the draft.
Colts players were all over Twitter on Sunday giving their thoughts on the terrific games in Dallas and Kansas City. Will consecutive January's spent watching the playoffs be enough motivation for the Colts to get back into the postseason?
