  • Manusky looking forward to finding right mix with Colts' defense

    From the outside looking in, it would appear that the Indianapolis Colts are in the midst of a retooling project on the defensive side of the football.
    Thanks to a flurry of offseason free agent signings, as well as one or two additions through the 2013 National Football League draft, the Colts could have as many as six new starters when the regular season opens.

  • Camp Scene: Luck, Hamilton getting on same page for Colts’ offense

    The Stanford connection is alive and well with the Indianapolis Colts.
    During last year’s NFL draft, the Colts added quarterback Andrew Luck and tight end Coby Fleener. Not too long after the draft, wide receiver Grriff Whalen joined in. Safety Delano Howell, meanwhile, was signed by Indianapolis in late November after spending most of the season with the Buffalo Bills.

  • Colts’ Fleener has high expectations for himself

    The person least impressed by Coby Fleener’s hot start to training camp appears to be the second-year Indianapolis Colts tight end himself.
    Perhaps he’s thinking back to his rookie season when he debuted with six catches for 82 yards against the Chicago Bears, then missed four games in the middle of the year and finished with five straight single-catch performances.

  • Colts Camp Football_Tayl.jpg Colts’ rally cry: ‘Unfinished business’ in ’13

    A year ago — with a new head coach, a rookie starting quarterback, a first-year general manager and coming off a dismal 2-14 record — the Indianapolis Colts’ training camp mantra was “Build the Monster.” This year, coming on the heels of an 11-5 campaign and a 24-9 AFC wild-card round loss to eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore, the slogan has become “Unfinished Business.”

  • Wayne's grand entrance sets off start of training camp for Colts

    Leave it to Reggie Wayne to make another grand entrance for the start of Indianapolis Colts training camp.
    Wayne, the Colts’ Pro Bowl wide receiver, has made a habit over the years of being one of the last players to arrive for camp. And he’s also made it something of a media event for the various modes of transportation that he uses to show up.
    Saturday’s entrance was certainly no exception. And maybe the best yet.

  • Landry believes he'll acclimate to Colts system

    Many Indianapolis fans have questioned why strong safety Laron Landry decided to skip the Colts' OTA workouts, especially since he was joining a new team with a somewhat different defensive system than what he was used to playing with the Jets.

  • Colts in harmony with new coordinator Hamilton

    With new Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton now running the show, the Colts are in the middle of a metamorphosis from the downfield, big-play system that was utilized by former coordinator Bruce Arians to more of a West Coast scheme that will look to make more use of the short, controlled passing game. 

    According to Andrew Luck, so far so good.

  • Luck having fun with his first OTAs

    A year ago, quarterback Andrew Luck was unable to attend the Indianapolis Colts’ organized team activity practices due to school commitments at Stanford.
    Luck, though, went on to have a stellar year for the Colts despite the lack of summer work with the team. Still, in a sense, he is a rookie during this year’s OTA workouts.
    “These are my first OTAs. I missed these last year, so I think it’s great. It’s great to get on the field with the defense and trouble-shoot some stuff. Obviously, some of us ran some of this stuff [offense] at Stanford [under new offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton]. But to get out there with the defense and trouble-shoot some stuff is good,” Luck said Wednesday as the team wrapped up its first week of on-field voluntary practice sessions.

  • Colts hoping for more high marks on draft picks

    A year ago, the Indianapolis Colts received high marks for the impact players the team added through the NFL draft.
    Of the 10 players selected, five ended up either starting or seeing extensive playing time (quarterback Andrew Luck, tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen, wide receiver T.Y. Hilton and running back Vick Ballard) during the Colts’ 11-5 season.
    While this year’s class may not rival that group in terms of name recognition and flash, it may produce just as many major contributors once the 2013 season gets underway.

  • Colts in wait-and-see mode for tonight’s NFL draft

    As the 2013 NFL draft gets underway tonight at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, the Indianapolis Colts are continuing their wait-and-see stance in regard to the first-round pick.
    The draft begins at 8 p.m. — televised by the NFL Network and ESPN — with the Kansas City Chiefs making the night’s first selection. Teams will have 10 minutes to make their decisions during the first round. Indianapolis will have the 24th overall pick in the first round.
    There will be only one round tonight. The second and third rounds are scheduled for Friday, beginning at 6:30 p.m. with seven minutes allotted per pick in the second round and five minutes allowed in the third. The final four rounds are slated to begin at noon Saturday with four minutes between selections.
    As it stands now, Indianapolis does not have a second-round pick. It was traded to Miami last fall in exchange for veteran cornerback Vontae Davis. But second-year general manager Ryan Grigson has nut ruled out the possibility of trading down from the first round if the Colts aren’t satisfied with the players available.

  • Colts sign Matt Hasselbeck to back up Luck

    The Indianapolis Colts’ roster moves just keep coming.
    While the Colts haven’t yet added that big-name wide receiver that team owner Jim Irsay hinted at in tweets over the weekend, Indianapolis has addressed one area on offense.
    Former Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck had agreed Monday night to be the Colts’ primary back-up to second-year starter Andrew Luck. He officially signed a two-year, $8 million contract with the team Tuesday morning.
    “We are very pleased to announce the signing of Matt Hasselbeck,” general manager Ryan Grigson said in a prepared statement. “His body of work, intangibles, and extensive league experience speak for themselves. Those factors, plus his familiarity with our offensive scheme, will make him a great asset to our team and its vision as we move forward.”

Landry, a strong safety who appears to be a bigger version of former Indianapolis Pro Bowler Bob Sanders, and the versatile Jean-Francois are expected to make immediate impacts on the Colts’ defensive unit.

  • Colts introduce free-agent signees

    What the Indianapolis Colts accomplished last season — posting an 11-5 record and earning an AFC wild-card berth with a young team plus having that kind of success without its head coach on the sidelines for 12 games — didn’t go unnoticed by players around the NFL.
    That was especially true for the five veteran free agents who were added to the Colts’ roster Tuesday. Offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus (Detroit), cornerback Greg Toler (Arizona), outside linebacker Erik Walden (Green Bay), offensive guard Donald Thomas (New England) and linebacker Lawrence Sidbury (Atlanta) admitted as much Wednesday.
    “I felt like this would be the best fit for me at this point in my career. I really liked what I saw was happening with the program here and the way things have taken shape. I feel like we have a really great team here and it’s on the rise. I really wanted to be a part of that,” Thomas said during a teleconference interview with the Colts’ media.
