Hakeem Nicks to the Colts Draws Rave Reviews Around the NFL

Posted by Kevin Bowen on March 14, 2014 – 8:24 pm

In three of the past four days, Ryan Grigson has executed deals in the early evening.

For a Friday night at about 7:00 p.m. EST, none of the previous moves quite matched the magnitude of the words “Hakeem Nicks to the Colts”.

Nicks comes to the Colts after five seasons with the New York Giants. Twice he has reached the 1,000-yard plateau and caught a game-high 10 catches for 109 yards in the Giants Super Bowl XLVI win at Lucas Oil Stadium.

So how is the Nicks news being received around the NFL, and inside the Colts locker room?

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS SIGN UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENT WR-HAKEEM NICKS

Posted by coltsindianapolis on – 7:52 pm

nicks-hakeem-01The Indianapolis Colts today signed unrestricted free agent wide receiver Hakeem Nicks.

“Hakeem is a big, tough, and highly competitive wide receiver who knows what it takes to win,” said General Manager Ryan Grigson. “His big-play potential requires attention from the defense every time he’s out on the field. He adds another highly talented playmaker to our offense and we are happy to announce he is now an Indianapolis Colt.”

Nicks, 6-1, 208 pounds, caught 311 passes for 4,622 yards and 27 touchdowns in 70 regular season games (59 starts) over the last five seasons (2009-2013) with the New York Giants. He also totaled 28 receptions for 444 yards and four touchdowns in four postseason starts. Since 2009, Nicks ranks eighth in the NFC in receiving yards, ninth in receptions and tied for 15th in receiving touchdowns.

Nicks’ 27 career touchdown receptions place him in a tie for 11th place in Giants history, while his career-high 11 touchdowns in 2010 are tied for the fourth-most in a single season in team history. He posted back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons in 2010 and 2011, including a career-high 1,192 yards in 2011.  In 2013, Nicks tallied 56 receptions for 896 yards in 15 starts.

Nicks recorded 444 postseason receiving yards en route to the Giants 2011 Super Bowl XLVI victory, which ranks as the second-most in a single postseason in NFL history. His 28 receptions also rank tied for second, while his four touchdown receptions are tied for sixth.

Nicks was originally selected by the Giants in the first round (29th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft out of the North Carolina. He started all 36 games he played in at UNC and holds school records for the most career receptions (181) and touchdown receptions (21).

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS SIGN FREE AGENT C-PHIL COSTA

Posted by coltsindianapolis on March 13, 2014 – 5:18 pm

The Indianapolis Colts today signed free agent center Phil Costa.

“Phil is a young, hard-nosed and physical center who has shown he can play at a winning level in our league,” said General Manager Ryan Grigson. “He will provide strong competition at the center position.”

Costa, 6-3, 302 pounds, played in 26 games (20 starts) over the last four seasons (2010-13) with the Dallas Cowboys. In 2011, he started all 16 games for the first time in his career and blocked for quarterback Tony Romo to throw for 4,184 yards, 31 touchdowns and a career-high 102.5 passer rating. Costa also helped block for a Cowboys offense that ranked fifth in the NFC in passing yards and eighth in total yards and rushing yards.

Costa was originally signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Maryland on April 30, 2010. At Maryland, he played in 40 career games, including 30 starts, at the guard and center positions.

Chargers Sign Kavell Conner, Chiefs Sign Jeff Linkenbach

Posted by Kevin Bowen on – 2:39 pm

The Chargers and Colts connection continued on Thursday with San Diego signing former Colts linebacker Kavell Conner.

Earlier this week, the Chargers signed former Colts running back Donald Brown.

Conner joins Brown after playing four seasons with the Colts and starting 36 games since being drafted by Indianapolis in 2010.

Below is an excerpt from the Chargers announcing the acquisition of Conner:

Over four seasons, the 6-0, 245-pounder recorded 236 tackles, seven passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one sack.  His most productive campaign came in 2011 when he started 15 of 16 games, amassing 104 tackles.  Overall, he’s made 36 starts in 52 career games. Conner dealt with injuries in 2013, appearing in only 10 games while recording just 21 tackles.

Conner has a number of ties to his new team, most notably with Telesco.  The general manager was a member of the Colts front office when he was selected in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Conner also played collegiately at Clemson alongside two of his new Chargers teammates, Crezdon Butler and Marcus Gilchrist.  Finally, he’ll be under the tutelage of Defensive Coordinator John Pagano after suiting up the past two seasons for his brother, Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano.

On Wednesday, the Kansas City Chiefs signed versatile offensive lineman Jeff Linkenbach.

As a 2010 undrafted free agent, Linkenbach filled a variety of roles up front for the Colts and started 33 games in his four seasons.

Below is the Linkenbach part of the Chiefs release:

Linkenbach (6-6, 325, #72) has played in 60 games (33 starts) in four NFL seasons with the Indianapolis Colts (2010-13). He has seen action in four postseason games (two starts). Known for his versatility, Linkenbach served as both a tackle and a guard in his time in Indianapolis. He originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Colts on April 30, 2010. He graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2010, after serving as the Bearcats right tackle for four years. Linkenbach prepped at Margaretta High School in Castalia, Ohio.

Antoine Bethea and Donald Brown Sign with the 49ers, Chargers

Posted by Kevin Bowen on March 12, 2014 – 9:03 am

A pair of Colts veterans found new homes rather quickly when the free agency period opened up on Tuesday afternoon.

Drafted by the Colts in 2006, Bethea was a mainstay at the safety position during his eight seasons in Indianapolis.

Bethea hasn’t missed a game since the 2007 season and that durability attracted the San Francisco 49ers. In San Francisco, Bethea is expected to fill the starting role left by free agent Donte Whitner.

As expected, Colts teammates took to Twitter to show their gratitude for Bethea:

Later in the day it was the five-year veteran Brown who found some familiar faces with the San Diego Chargers.

Former Colts Director of Player Personnel Tom Telesco hasn’t been shy about pursuing former Colts in his little more than a year as the Chargers general manager.

Just like with Bethea, the support for Brown came from his former teammates despite agreeing to terms very late in the night on Tuesday:

Posted by coltsindianapolis on March 11, 2014 – 6:24 pm

The Indianapolis Colts today re-signed unrestricted free agent running back Ahmad Bradshaw.

Bradshaw appeared in three games (two starts) for the Colts in 2013 and rushed for 186 yards and two touchdowns on 41 attempts, while adding seven receptions for 42 yards. In Week 3 at San Francisco, he ran for a season-high 95 yards and a touchdown en route to a 27-7 Colts victory over the 49ers. Bradshaw was then placed on Injured Reserve on October 9, 2013.

For his seven-year career, Bradshaw has rushed 962 times for 4,418 yards and 34 touchdowns, while catching 139 passes for 1,129 yards and three touchdowns in 87 regular season games (35 starts). In nine postseason contests (three starts), he has totaled 480 yards and two touchdowns on 111 attempts and 20 receptions for 141 yards.

Bradshaw first joined the Colts as a free agent on June 11, 2013 after spending six seasons (2007-2012) with the New York Giants. He was originally selected by the Giants in the seventh round (250th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft out of Marshall University.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS AGREE TO TERMS WITH CB-VONTAE DAVIS

Posted by coltsindianapolis on – 5:32 pm

The Indianapolis Colts today agreed to terms with cornerback Vontae Davis.

 

“We are very pleased to announce that Vontae Davis will remain part of the Colts family,” said General Manager Ryan Grigson. “He is a rare talent at 25 years of age who is still ascending as a player. We are excited to see him reach new heights in his career and help us attain our ultimate goal.”

 

Davis started all 16 games for the first time in his career in 2013 and recorded 48 tackles (42 solo), a career-high 13 passes defensed and one interception. In two postseason games (one start), he posted four solo tackles. In 2012, Davis started all 10 games he appeared in and compiled 53 tackles (40 solo), seven passes defensed, three interceptions and a sack. He earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors in Week 17 against Houston after intercepting two passes and adding a career-high three passes defensed.

 

For his five-year NFL career, Davis has competed in 70 games (62 starts) and has totaled 243 tackles (208 solo), 52 passes defensed, 13 interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, 2.0 sacks and one forced fumble. Since 2009, his interception total ranks tied for 10th in the AFC, while his passes defensed total ranks 12th in the conference.

 

Davis was acquired by the Colts in a trade with the Miami Dolphins on August 26, 2012. He was originally selected by the Dolphins in the first round (25th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft out of the University of Illinois.
