Antoine Bethea joined the NFL AM crew last week and the eight-year veteran shared some insight on a couple of interesting storylines with the Colts.
While the faces around Bethea have changed significantly, the safety has enjoyed watching new teammates fit into the Horseshoe.
“It’s different having different guys come in and out but it’s a lot of fun seeing a lot of the young guys come in, step in and make a lot of plays for us, especially coming off last year. It’s been a great ride,” Bethea said.
One of the new teammates who has joined Bethea in the secondary is LaRon Landry.
The Pro Bowl safety is known for his physicality and Bethea is ready to welcome receivers to the Colts secondary this year.
“Having LaRon it’s going to be fun,” says Bethea. “I just can’t wait to get back there with receivers coming across the middle and just laying wood and raising havoc back there.”
Typical to most national interviews, the segment was not over until Bethea fielded a question about Andrew Luck.
Bethea said one of the things that Luck has improved on this year is accepting the fact that he doesn’t need to force balls into tight windows.
“This year in preseason (Luck) will get a check down to a running back. He will put the ball in places only where receivers will catch the ball,” Bethea said.
“No. 12 man, he won’t have a sophomore slump. He will just continue to do great things for this team.”
