It’s a dream come true just to be able to go out there and practice with the team. One of the other reasons Paye isn’t feeling a lot of pressure right now is the knowledge that he won’t be asked to do many things outside of his comfort zone.

Granson was elated when the Indianapolis Colts selected him last Saturday in the fourth round of the NFL Draft.

There’s been no specific talk about Ehlinger’s role yet, and he’s certainly not pressing the issue. A four-year starter for the Longhorns, he’s focused on learning the game at the NFL level and competing in whichever ways the coaches see fit. I think that it’s kind of an understood that I’m here to play quarterback, and I’ll do whatever it takes to help the team win,” Ehlinger said last week.

Friday, May 7th, 2021

By the time the inaugural Kicking the Stigma Week fundraiser had ended Thursday, the Colts and the Irsay family had raised $2,273,449, a figure Colts owner Jim Irsay promptly matched to bring the total to $4,546,898, an enormous amount of money to continue the Irsay family’s fight to raise awareness and remove the stigma often associated with mental illness. Four days spent focusing on Kicking the Stigma ultimately paid off. In more ways than just the obvious.

Heading into the 2021 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts' defensive line found itself in significant need of a high-end pass rusher and run defender to replace Denico Autry and Justin Houston.

After the 2020 season, it was clear quarterback Carson Wentz needed a fresh start. He got one when Indianapolis agreed to trade for him in February, reuniting him with his former offensive coordinator, Colts head coach Frank Reich. That Wentz was even available would have likely been a shock a year ago at this time, [more]
