Draft Eve Colts News

In what will be a relief to Colts fans, the Indy Star is reporting that Dwight Freeney is now beginning running drills, and expects to be ready to play by opening day. Hearing of his progress is great news, because while Bob Sanders may be the soul of the Colts defense, Dwight Freeney is the heart:

There's no debating Freeney's value to the Colts, who signed him to a six-year, $72 million contract last July. They were able to get by without him during the seven regular-season games he missed at the end of last season, but a Freeney-less pass rush was a major factor in the Colts' postseason loss to San Diego.

"I'm not sure there is another defensive player that has had as big an impact on a team as Dwight Freeney the last few years,'' said former Houston Texans general manager Charley Casserly. "He makes the whole defense better in Indianapolis.''

In what will be perplexing to Colts fans, the Patriots have signed 36-year-old, former Colts TE Marcus Pollard. Living in Rams land, I saw way too many Seahawks games last year. I have to say, I'm not all that impressed with Pollard's skills these days. He's not the same player he was for the Colts. I really have no idea what the Patriots are thinking with this move.
