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





INDIANAPOLIS – What are players up to now that the NFL offseason has begun for the Colts?

Since the 2012 Combine, it's been a crazy first three seasons in the NFL for Herron. He was the Colts feature back down the stretch in 2014 and now enters 2015 as a restricted free agent.

Got to get back up... — Gosder Cherilus (@GosderCherilus) February 18, 2015

It will be an offseason of rehab for Gosder Cherilus. If he can return, healthy, then the Colts have their tackle position in stone, allowing the resources along the line to focus on the interior spots.

Shooting some fun shots with @RobertMathis98 today with our friends @PurAthlete. He's a big man. — Josef Newgarden (@josefnewgarden) February 18, 2015

Mathis was hanging out with IndyCar driver Josef Newgarden earlier this week. The Achilles rehab process for Mathis has been a hot topic lately. There is no timetable for the return of the 34-year old Mathis.

Had a blast on @NFLAM chatting about the improvements needed to take the next step! #BTM — Dwayne Allen (@Dallen83) February 19, 2015

Dwayne Allen was a guest on Wednesday's NFL AM at the Combine. In Allen's appearance (which can be seen on, he talked about his own Combine experience. Allen did not test very well at the Combine in 2012 but is an example of a guy that all the numbers tested in Indy doesn't necessarily spell boom or bust for NFL success.

Joining Allen on NFL AM, was Pat McAfee (was live on Thursday morning with the crew) McAfee is a frequent guest of NFL AM and was entertaining as always with his friends from Los Angeles. McAfee has entered the last two offseasons as a free agent. He's now in Indy approaching the second year of a five-year deal following an All-Pro campaign in 2014.

In his three seasons with the Colts, Overton and his contributions to Riley Hospital has been a staple of the long snapper's time in Indy. Overton was back at it earlier this week donating $4,000 to Ball State's Dance Marathon. It was just another act for Overton, who is a frequent visitor of patients down at Riley Hospital during the season and in the offseason.

A year after Colts teammates wondered if Davis would be back in Indy, the Pro Bowl cornerback is now curious who might be joining him next season. The recruiting period begins in great detail this weekend with agents all over downtown Indianapolis meeting with the GM's of their clients.

Darius Butler headed back to Connecticut this week to speak to his former Uconn Huskies about being in the NFL and handling that life style. Butler is a free agent in 2015 after a couple of successful seasons with the Colts.

Fans might not know Tyler Hoover but he's an interesting story to follow this offseason. Hoover was a rookie defensive lineman last year out of Michigan State who made the switch to the *offensive line *(a move that is virtually unheard of in the NFL) about halfway through Training Camp. The Colts signed Hoover (a 2014 undrafted free agent) to a reserve/future contract following the season as they build the roster to 90 players.
