Colts’ TE uses offseason to develop love of writing

By: Amanda Maynard WISH-TV

Coby Fleener is putting that Stanford education to use thanks to his unique writing skills.

WISH-TV has the story on Fleener’s website where he writes blog posts on a variety of topics that are inside and outside of the football.

“I wanted an avenue to express my opinions outside the standard Twitter, Facebook and small posts,” Fleener told WISH-TV’s Amanda Maynard.  “I wanted to show a side of me that wasn’t just the helmet and shoulder pads on.”

The writing avenue allows Fleener a chance to “decompress” a bit along with giving people a look into what the second-year tight end is like away from the gridiron.

“Rather than me just dictate to them what I think, it’s about starting an educated conversation on whatever the topic may be,” said Fleener.  “To be able to go back and forth with other people’s opinions is, to me, a real sign of true openness and intelligence.”

Together again: Colts reunite former Boston College teammates to upgrade offensive line

By: Mike Chappell, Indianapolis Star

Chappell takes a look at the friendship between Colts tackles Anthony Castonzo and Gosder Cherilus that is continuing in Indianapolis.

Back in 2007, it was Cherilus looking out for Castonzo, the then Boston College freshman, as the two started opposite each other for the Eagles.

Now in 2013, it’s Castonzo returning the favor for the Colts new free agent tackle with some living arrangements during the offseason.

“He’s got a place to stay and a cook,” Castonzo said. “I’m not charging him rent. I’m kind of repaying him for helping me through college.”

The article takes a deeper look into the Boston College roots at the tackle position, including a tidbit on current Colts rookie tackle Emmett Cleary.

Colts expect resolution – good or bad – with RB Ahmad Bradshaw today.

By: Mike Chappell, Indianapolis Star

The Ahmad Bradshaw news resurfaced on Monday morning with NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeting that the Colts are still in “heavy negotiations” on contract talks with the former Giants running back.

Chappell points out a similar notion and is interested to see whether the start of minicamp today as any impact on a deal getting done.

He wrote…

Although no details of the negotiations are known, a person with knowledge of the situation indicated a resolution — one way or the other — could occur later today.

Landry’s debut worth noting

By: George Bremer, The Herald Bulletin

One of the most popular topics over the next few days will be the first look at new Colts safety LaRon Landry.

Like he has done throughout his career, Landry spent the offseason working out on his own and reports today for the beginning of Colts minicamp.

Bremer wrote a column on Landry’s arrival and what it will mean to the Colts secondary.

He writes…

A defensive backfield of Vontae Davis, Greg Toler, Bethea and Landry has a lot of promise on paper. And Indianapolis head coach Chuck Pagano made his name coaching defensive backs. There are endless possibilities for what he might do with this kind of talent.
