Austin Collie still seeking an opportunity

By: Paul Kuharsky, ESPN.com

Kuharsky took the USA Today article that was in yesterday’s Colts Daily Headlines and expanded on the Austin Collie piece within his blog.

One interesting tidbit that Kuharsky includes in his blog is some quotes from Collie’s former teammate Peyton Manning.

“I haven’t had to give Austin any advice,” Manning said. “I keep in touch with Austin. He’s actually sent me some video of himself working out and rehabbing. He’s getting healthy. He’s just about getting cleared to work out for teams. Austin is a great friend of mine. I really enjoyed the three years we had playing together.

“He’s had just a string of bad luck when it’s come to injuries. But when he’s healthy, to me, he’s a top-flight receiver, especially in the slot. I think he’ll make a team better if they were to choose him. I think about him and hope — I think he’s getting real close to getting 100 percent healthy with his patella and I wish him all the best.”

Best values: Vontae Davis, J.J. Watt, Brian Cushing

By: Paul Kuharsky, ESPN.com

In this blog, Kuharsky takes a look at three guys that CBS Sports Jason LaCanfora labels from the AFC South as “the best values” in the NFL.

For the Colts, it’s Vontae Davis that cracked the list and the following includes and analysis of Davis who is heading into the final year of his contract at $1.9M.

“When the Colts acquired him, smartly, from Miami, they kept him on his rookie deal. Davis has the size and ability to continue his growth, and in the meantime is a vital part of a Colts team that reached the playoffs last year due in large part to its young talent.”
