Dwayne Allen's Busy March Takes Him To Hawaii

Intro: Each week, will compile the best Tweets/Instagrams from players throughout the week. Here’s a look at this week’s posts.


INDIANAPOLIS – While many of the social media action for Colts players this week came in excitement for their new teammates, there was a lot other action for the guys already under contract.

Wow, what a month, so far, for Dwayne Allen. Along with Chuck Pagano and Andrew Luck, Allen returned to the United States on Monday. On Tuesday, he was at Shortridge High School for his DREAM Alive program that, with the help of Papa John, helped raise $30,249 during the 2014 season. On Thursday, Allen was in Los Angeles appearing on NFL AM. Next up for the Colts young tight end is a trip to Hawaii to take part in NFLPA meetings (Allen is the Colts player representative).

Mike Adams carries the nickname "Pops" and it's fitting for the soon-to-be 34-year old Colts safety. Adams' tutelage extends to Dewey McDonald, a 2014 undrafted free agent who played on special teams for the Colts in the final three months of the season. In a two-year deal for Adams, he will continue to be a veteran voice in a safety room that will almost assuredly have some younger faces join the back end of the defense this offseason.

The hometown hero of Joe Reitz has returned for another season with the Colts. Reitz's journey has been well chronicled and is a tremendous story. The former college basketball star is entering his fifth year playing in his hometown. Reitz is also one of five Colts who has been on the team prior to the 2012 season (Robert Mathis, Adam Vinatieri, Pat McAfee and Anthony Castonzo).

This tweet from T.Y. Hilton was one from several Colts on Tuesday with free agency beginning that afternoon. Players are fans at heart so the craziness that ensued on Tuesday was thrilling to them. They also see the side of the NFL no personnel man enjoys. You just can't script all the chaos we saw on Tuesday.

Carter fired off this tweet on Monday as he begins his first full offseason in the NFL. When Carter got wind of the Colts moves in free agency he added they were "Madden-like." The addition of Andre Johnson to the Colts obviously impacts things on the field, but what he will do for such a young receiving room should not be forgotten.
