The Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers will travel to Canton, Ohio to kick off the National Football League's 2016 preseason in the NFL/Hall of Fame Game on Sunday, Aug. 7 at 8 PM ET in Canton's Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.
Indianapolis and Green Bay will close out the 2016 Enshrinement Weekend one day after three of their famed legends are formally enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Former Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy and wide receiver Marvin Harrison will join former Packers quarterback Brett Favre among the eight-man class that was elected to the Hall of Fame in February. Other members of the Hall of Fame's Class of 2016 include owner Edward DeBartolo, Jr., linebacker Kevin Greene, tackle Orlando Pace, quarterback Ken Stabler and guard Dick Stanfel.
The Indianapolis Colts finished the 2015 season with an 8-8 record, were 4-2 within the AFC South Division and sent three players to the Pro Bowl in safety Mike Adams, cornerback Vontae Davis and wide receiver T.Y. Hilton.
General Manager Ryan Grigson and Head Coach Chuck Pagano worked hand in hand to improve the roster in every way possible during the offseason. Indianapolis' regimented approach to free agency landed WR-Josh Boyce, CB-Patrick Robinson, RB-Jordan Todman, QBScott Tolzien and RB-Robert Turbin. The team also agreed to new contracts with TE-Dwayne Allen, TE-Jack Doyle and K-Adam Vinatieri. In the 2016 NFL Draft, the Colts landed four offensive players and four defensive players. The class was highlighted by C-Ryan Kelly, whom the team had targeted in the months leading up to the draft.
