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.
Offseason times usually allow guys to explore careers after professional football. I can say D'Qwell Jackson would make for a very good analyst. He got some work in that on Thursday morning by joining NFL AM out in California. Jackson is coming off a season in which he finished second in the NFL in tackles.
When Andy Studebaker re-joined the Colts in December, he had some family matters to juggle. With his wife pregnant expecting twins, the veteran Studebaker had quite a bit on his mind late in 2015. After this tweet, Robert Mathis (who has twin boys of his own) sent a message back to Studebaker: "it's about to go down!!!! #GotPlentyOfAdviceBro
This is a pretty unique time for NFL players seeing some of their close friends relocate. Fans might not initially think about the impact on the Rams players themselves having to move to Los Angeles. They have to get up and move their family across the country. How does that impact their families, or the Rams acquiring potential free agents this spring and even trying to create a virtually new fan base? The Colts will play in Los Angeles against the Rams in 2017. They will (potentially) play the Chargers in Los Angeles in 2019, when the new Inglewood stadium is expected to be ready.
On Monday, the Colts had a couple of Clemson Tigers fans out at the National Championship game. Charlie Whitehurst and Dwayne Allen were in Arizona to watch their alma mater play Alabama. Allen is often seen around the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center donning his Clemson colors.
