INDIANAPOLIS – How are Colts players spending their offseason with free agency beginning to wind down?
McAfee's tweet came a few minutes after the Colts added a little March Madness flavor to their offseason haul on Thursday. The Colts signed Demarco Cox, who just last week was playing in the ACC Basketball Tournament for Georgia Tech. After the Colts made some major headlines at the start of free agency, they are in the business of adding prospects filled with potential to complete their 90-man roster.
On the day following this tweet from Carter, the Colts announced offseason numbers for the 68 players current on the roster. Carter will wear No. 9 this offseason. A month from today OTAs begin and Carter will definitely be one of the storylines to watch during the Colts nine-week offseason program.

Jonathan Newsome is going to be learning from another veteran pass rusher next year in Trent Cole. What Newsome showed late in his rookie season has people very intrigued to what the future could hold for the Colts 2014 fifth-round pick. The Colts have several proven pass rushers currently on their roster but Newsome is the youngest of the group with plenty of potential.
Vontae Davis might be five years younger than his brother, Vernon, but the two are definitely very close. An injury kept Vernon out of the 2013 Week Three matchup between the Colts and 49ers. Vernon always has talked about the Pro Bowl potential in his younger brother and we saw that come to fruition last season.
This time last year the then 20-year old Moncrief was busy preparing for the NFL Draft. He was taken in the third-round and despite a deep receiver group in the offseason, Moncrief found his way onto the field as a young rookie. Moncrief figures to be the No. 3 wideout for the Colts heading into OTAs, behind T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson.
