The Indianapolis Colts have reached a 5 year deal with punter Pat McAfee.
After playing under the franchise tag last season, the Colts have retained their young veteran punter. The fan favorite has turned into one of the better punters in the NFL, and had a great season in 2013.
The Colts signed McAfee to a 5 year, 14M dollar deal.
McAfee announced the news on the air on NFL Network saying that "he was staying with the Colts" and that "I'm super excited about it and I can't wait to get back to Indy,"
The boomstick is staying!

The Indianapolis Colts have reach a deal with former Cleveland Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson.
Jackson has finally made his choice, and he decided to come to the team that he thought were "serious contenders".
The Colts signed Jackson to a 4 year, 22 million dollar deal, with 11 million of that (50%) guaranteed. Jim Irsay announced the news on Twitter.
Jackson was released from the Cleveland Browns last week, where he was suppose to be due 4.2 million in roster bonuses. Jackson was a captain on the Browns for several years and their leading tackler for a few years as well.
Jackson reunites with his former head coach Rob Chudzinski, who is an assistant to head coach Chuck Pagano.; Chudzinski had a big say in Jackson coming over.
"We are pleased to announce the signing of inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson," general manager Ryan Grigson said in a statement. "He is a team-first guy that has been a very consistent producer on the field. The tempo, energy and determination he plays with are right up there with the best in this league. He brings a welcomed element of experience and natural leadership to our team, and we are excited to add him to the strong nucleus of linebackers we currently have on our roster."
Jackson is expected to be the starting inside linebacker next to Jerrell Freeman.

1st Overall Pick – Houston Texans
Teddy Bridgewater – Quarterback – Louisville
Bridgewater should be the first overall pick. The Texans are a quarterback away from making the playoffs, and Teddy Bridgewater is a good quarterback, to say the least. If they go quarterback, they need to go with Bridgewater.
2nd Overall Pick – St Louis Rams (from Washington Redskins)
Sammy Watkins – Wide Receiver – Clemson
The Rams improved on defense tremendously, but they lack playmakers on offense. Watkins is probably the best receiver to come out of college since AJ Green, and he is expected to be a star in this league. He’ll be Bradford’s go-to-guy for years.
3rd Overall Pick – Jacksonville Jaguars
Jadaveon Clowney – Defensive End – South Carolina
You can’t go wrong with Jadaveon Clowney. The Jaguars lack firepower on offense, but they lack a playmaker on defense, and Clowney can be a stud for 10 years in this league, and is probably the best player in this draft. They can’t go wrong with him.
4th Overall Pick – Cleveland Browns
Johnny Manziel – Quarterback – Texas A&M
I have Johnny Manziel at 4 because the Browns need a quarterback badly, and Manziel is a playmaker. Having him and Josh Gordon on the field at the same time could be a deadly combination. He could be the guy that gets them over the hump.
5th Overall Pick – Oakland Raiders
Blake Bortles – Quarterback – UCF
Bortles improved his stock with a great performance at the combine, and he could be the guy the Raiders need. It doesn’t seem like Terrelle Pryor is the answer, and Bortles could be the perfect quarterback that that offense needs.
6th Overall Pick – Atlanta Falcons
Greg Robinson – Offensive Tackle – Auburn
The Falcons get the perfect pick here. Greg Robinson is the best offensive tackle in the draft, and showed his great athleticism at the combine. After a horrendous year on offense, thanks in large part to a terrible offensive line, this is the guy that helps the Falcons get back on track.
7th Overall Pick – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jake Matthews – Offensive Tackle – Texas A&M
Matthews is right up there with Robinson for best tackle in the draft. Matthews has been a consistent rock for the last few seasons, and spent last season guarding Manziel’s blindside. He’s a great addition for a team that needs to rebuild on offense.
8th Overall Pick – Minnesota Vikings
Justin Gilbert – Cornerback – Oklahoma State
I think Gilbert became the best cornerback in this draft with a fantastic performance at the combine. The Vikings need a playmaker in the secondary, and Gilbert could be that guy. I don’t think they should reach for Derek Carr here, but rather, add playmakers to their defense.
9th Overall Pick – Buffalo Bills
Marqise Lee – Wide Receiver – USC
Marqise Lee is a perfect fit here. Who knows how many years Stevie Johnson has left in Buffalo, and Robert Woods doesn’t seem like a future #1 with that team. Lee could become the #1 target for EJ Manuel and help spread that offense.
10th Overall Pick – Detroit Lions
Eric Ebron – Tight End – North Carolina
I’m not a big fan of drafting tight ends early, but Eric Ebron is a rare tight end. Ebron completely tore up the combine, and had a very productive season with UNC. He could be the perfect playmaker to compliment Calvin Johnson.
11th Overall Pick – Tennessee Titans
Khalil Mack – Outside Linebacker – Buffalo
Yes, I have Khalil Mack over Anthony Barr. It’s a close call, but Mack gets the slight advantage. With the Titans switching to a 3-4, they’ll need a solid outside linebacker to get consistent pressure on the QB. Mack could get you 10 sacks this season.
12th Overall Pick – New York Giants
CJ Mosley – Linebacker – Alabama
The Giants were lost this season, especially on defense. Defenses should be built around their linebackers, and the Giants don’t have good linebackers as it is. Mosley is the best inside linebacker in the country, and can become a great outside (or even inside) linebacker for them. He’s a tackling machine.
13th Overall Pick – St Louis Rams
Darqueze Dennard – Cornerback – Michigan State
Cortland Finnegan didn’t do much this season, and who knows how many years he has left. There’s also a question mark around Janoris Jenkins. Dennard can come in and have an impact from day 1. This would be a great pick for the Rams.
14th Overall Pick – Chicago Bears
Ha’sean Clinton Dix – Safety – Alabama
The Bears haven’t had a good safety in several years. Major Wright was one of the worst starting safeties in the league last season. Haha Clinton Dix was a playmaker with Alabama, and could be the perfect piece for this defense.
15th Overall Pick – Pittsburgh Steelers
Aaron Donald – Defensive Tackle – Pittsburgh
The Steelers’ defensive line has regressed over the last few seasons, due to age and departures Drafting Donald could help rejuvenate that line, and could be a difference maker for years to come.
16th Overall Pick – Dallas Cowboys
Timmy Jernigan – Defensive Tackle – Florida State
The Cowboys are still trying to get comfortable in their 4-3 system, and they need more playmakers on that defense. They can add a big piece to their defense by drafting Jernigan, a difference maker who can come in and play right away.
17th Overall Pick – Baltimore Ravens
Mike Evans – Wide Receiver – Texas A&M
The loss of Anquan Boldin hurt the Ravens last season, and they lacked good receiving options outside of Torrey Smith. If the Ravens draft Mike Evans, they’ll give Joe Flacco a big target who can help Flacco out on a lot of plays (like he did for Manziel).
18th Overall Pick – New York Jets
Anthony Barr – Outside Linebacker – UCLA
So, this is where Anthony Barr drops. Barr has fallen back a bit in the last couple of months, but the guy is ridiculously athletic (as seen at the combine), and can make some big plays. He’s still a bit raw, but with the right coaching, he’s a pro bowler.
19th Overall Pick – Miami Dolphins
Taylor Lewan – Offensive Tackle – Michigan
Taylor Lewan had a fantastic combine, and is an experienced left tackle. The Dolphins have a terrible offensive line and who knows who will be manning the left tackle spot come next season. Lewan can come in and perform well right away.
20th Overall Pick – Arizona Cardinals
Zack Martin – Offensive Tackle – Notre Dame
The Cardinals desperately need an offensive tackle. They’ve made the right move to shore up their interior offensive line, but now it’s time to fix the outside. Drafting Martin here would give them a huge boost on offense, and it’ll give Carson Palmer some time to throw the ball.
21st Overall Pick – Green Bay Packers
Lamarcus Joyner – Cornerback – Florida State
Tramon Williams is a good cornerback, but he has no one to compliment him. Lamarcus Joyner is a talented cornerback from Florida State and he can step up and become the perfect #2 cornerback to Williams.
22nd Overall Pick – Philadelphia Eagles
Louis Nix III – Defensive Tackle – Notre Dame
It’s hard to have a successful 3-4 defense without a strong nose tackle. The Eagles have built a decent defense, but they need that big body up the middle, and that’s exactly what Nix is, he’s a big guy who can plug up the middle and cause problems.
23rd Overall Pick – Kansas City Chiefs
Stephon Tuitt – Defensive End – Notre Dame
The Chiefs could use some help along their defensive line, and Tuitt could be the perfect man to help shore it up. Tuitt is a big guy, who has experience as a 3 tech and 5-tech defensive lineman. He could fit in well as a 3 tech next to Dontari Poe.
24th Overall Pick – Cincinnati Bengals
Jordan Matthews – Wide Receiver – Vanderbilt
The Bengals could use a nice complimentary receiver to AJ Green. Jordan Matthews is a big body, and as we saw at the combine, is quite athletic as well. Matthews could give Andy Dalton another big target to throw to, and it could help him significantly, as he struggles when AJ Green is covered.
25th Overall Pick – San Diego Chargers
David Yankey – Offensive Guard – Stanford
The Chargers make a slight reach here with David Yankey, however, as we saw with the Cowboys last year, reaching is ok, and it could pay off big time. The interior offensive line of the Chargers is a question mark right now, and they could use a big body to help secure Phillip Rivers.
26th Overall Pick – Cleveland Browns (from Indianapolis Colts)
Calvin Pryor – Safety – Louisville
TJ Ward is a free agent this season, and they’ll need a guy to either replace or play next to him. Calvin Pryor is arguably the top safety in the class, and had a nice combine and a good final season at Louisville. He could be a nice player to bring into Cleveland.
27th Overall Pick – New Orleans Saints
Antonio Richardson – Offensive Tackle – Tennessee
Charles Brown was decent this year, but it’s clear they miss Jermon Bushrod. Antonio Richardson had a good final couple of seasons with the Volunteers, and seems like a good candidate to be Drew Brees’ blindside tackle. He’s athletic and has good footwork.
28th Overall Pick – Carolina Panthers
Kelvin Benjamin – Wide Receiver – Florida State
There seems to be a lot of hype around Kelvin Benjamin and I could kind of see it. He’s a big athletic body who was Jameis Winston’s favorite target last season. Brandon Lafell is a free agent this season and Steve Smith is getting old, which means they’ll need to bring in a young player for the future.
29th Overall Pick – New England Patriots
Ra’shede Hagemen – Defensive Tackle – Minnesota
After Vince Wilfork went down early in the season, the Patriots used many players to try and fill his hole, but it was never the same. Wilfork is close to retirement, and they’ll need someone to replace him (and play next to him now), and that guy is Hagemen, who had a solid combine and an impressive career at Minnesota.
30th Overall Pick – San Francisco 49ers
Bradley Roby – Cornerback – Ohio State
Roby had a very impressive day at the combine, and exceeded expectations. Add the fact that he had a nice season and has great intangibles, and you could be looking at a first round pick. He could help the 49ers in their one area of weakness on defense.
31st Overall Pick – Denver Broncos
Jason Verrett – Cornerback – TCU
Verrett had an incredible combine, but it seems like no one is talking about him. Before the combine, he was most likely a 2nd round pick, but after his great performance, don’t be surprised to see him sneak into the 1st round. He could help the Broncos in an area they need a lot of help in.
32nd Overall Pick – Seattle Seahawks
Kony Ealy – Defensive End – Missouri
Who knows if Michael Bennett will be staying with the team, and the team just cut Red Bryant. The team could use a guy like Ealy, who had an impressive career at Missouri, and he would fit in very well with that defense.

The Indianapolis Colts have been in the news the last few days after some rumors have been going around the league. One of the rumors is the Colts being interested in Broncos receiver Eric Decker, and Jonathan Martin potentially being traded to the Colts.
Eric Decker is one of the premier free agents in this year's class, and has been garnering a lot of attention. Decker has been a great receiver for the Broncos for the last few seasons now, and had nearly 1300 yards with 11 touchdowns on 87 catches last season. Even with Peyton Manning, those are incredible numbers. The Colts had issues at wide receiver this season after Reggie Wayne went down with his ACL injury. With Wayne creeping much closer to retirement, a guy like Decker could be the perfect guy to take over that #1 receiver spot.
Well as of earlier this morning, it has been reported by ESPN and NFL.com that the Indianapolis Colts are interested in Eric Decker.
According to my Free Agency Preview Guide (which comes out next week), Eric Decker is a top 20 receiver who should garner an (approximetely) 8M a year deal. The Colts have a little more than 40M in free cap space this offseason and even if they want to sign all of their free agents, they'll have a good amount of room left to spend in free agency.
Another rumor that has been going around has been Jonathan Martin and the Indianapolis Colts. Martin is the famous offensive tackle with the Miami Dolphins that received a lot of attention last season when he unexpectedly left the Dolphins after being bullied by some of his teammates. The Dolphins are shopping Martin to a few teams.
Andrew Luck said “I’d say I love Jon, we had a great time at Stanford together, still stay in touch with him regularly and I think he’s a great man." Asked whether he’d be 100 percent in favor of acquiring Martin, Luck said, “Yes.”
That quote raised many questions. Would he fit with the Colts? As it stands, the Colts have two established starters at each tackle position, so Jonathan Martin would be a backup if he were with the Colts. He would, however, be an incredible backup to have and would provide great depth. He knows the system very well, having played it at Stanford during his college days, and he knows several players on the team. If the Colts were willing to give up a late round pick for him, it would be a very good addition.
Those have been two rumors involving the Colts, and there should be many more to come in the coming weeks.

I always like to combine Day 3 and 4 because it's all the defensive prospects, and it's easier to break down. There were a lot of blazing performances, with Jadaveon Clowney's ridiculous 40 time leading the way. Here are my thoughts.
- Let's start with defensive end Jadaveon Clowney. Clowney told many he would tear up the 40 yard dash, and that's what he did. He killed it with a 4.53. He also had a 37.5 vertical jump, as well as 124 inch broad jump, which are both crazy for his size. He had only 21 bench reps, but I look at Robert Quinn's 22 bench reps as the perfect example of why bench reps are useless. Clowney killed it at the combine. He had almost nowhere to go but down, but for somehow, he helped his stock after the combine, if that was ever possible.
- Defensive tackle Aaron Donald was probably the most impressive defensive prospect at the combine, with his unbelievable times in the athletic events (despite his size). Actually, overall, he was probably the best player, offense or defense, at the combine. At 285 pounds, he was able to run a 4.68, which was among the best, and had a 7.11 3 cone drill, where he showcased great agility. His broad and vertical jumps were quite good as well and ranks him in the middle of the pack.
- Defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat had an impressive day and rose up a lot of charts with his performance at the combine. No one is really talking about his performance, but they should! He was a top performer in the 40 yard dash, broad jump and 3 cone drill, 3 very important drills for an edge defender. He also put up a 36 inch vertical jump, which is quite impressive as well. He put himself on the map with this performance and you could see him rise even into the 2nd round with these great performance.
- Outside Linebackers Anthony Barr and Khalil Mack will be pitted against each other until the NFL draft, and they both went head to head this weekend and both had relatively similar results. Both had nearly identical 40 yard dash and 20 yard shuttle times, however Mack had a much better broad and vertical jump. Barr had a better 3 cone drill, which in my opinion is a very important drill for edge defenders. Mack was able to bench press more. In the field drills, I think Barr outperformed Mack and Mack didn't look as fluid as Barr. However, it did not hurt his overall performance at the combine. Overall, it was very close between the two, but I'd say that Anthony Barr had the slightly better performance because of what he did in the field drills.
- I was watching outside linebacker Ryan Shazier to see how he would perform. Many talked about his athletic ability, which put him in an interesting place going into the combine. He couldn't have a bad performance. Well, he did not have a bad one and ranked near or at the top in almost every drill. He confirmed his outstanding athleticism.
- I like what inside linebacker Chris Borland did at the combine. He didn't light it up in the athletic events (although he had a lot of bench reps), but I like what he did in the field drills and I think he improved his draft stock.
- A lot of eyes were on cornerback Justin Gilbert and whether he would be able to get close to the 40 record. He didn't do that badly with a time of 4.36. That time confirms his fantastic speed and it should help his draft stock. He was also at the top of many other drills.
- Bravo Bradley Roby, bravo! He was a guy that I was not expecting to have a huge combine, and he came in a lit it up. He had a sub 4.4 40 time, which beat my projection by .1. Roby was also solid in the field drills and showcased good fluidity. He definitely helped his draft stock, and should be a mid 2nd round pick after this performance.
- Cornerback Jason Verrett also put together a very nice overall performance, showcasing great athetlcism. He came in the top 4 of every workout drill. Verrett was dropping a bit recently, but helped his stock with a very good combine and could be creeping closer toward the first round, although no one seems to be talking about him.

Day 2 of the NFL combine included a lot of great performances from the quarterbacks, running backs and receivers. Here are my thoughts on the day.
- Johnny Manziel had a very nice day athletically, and showcased good speed. However, I would have really liked to have seen him throw, and I think the scouts would as well. There are still a lot of questions surrounding his arm, and he could have silenced many people with a good performance.
- Logan Thomas may not have a great arm, but he is ridiculously athletic for a guy his size. At 6'6 250, he runs a 4.6 and dominated most of the athletic. He showed today that if teams are willing to put in the effort of trying to change this guy's mechanics, he may be a starter a few years down the line.
- Blake Bortles had a nice day and showcased pretty good athleticism as well as good mechanics in the position drills. He has very nice, clean footwork and can sling it down the field with ease. He does not have many weaknesses.
- Derek Carr surprised me today. I was expecting him to be average in many of the workout drills, but he definitely surpassed that. Carr ran in the 4.6s in the 40 yard dash, which is very impressive. He showcased his underrated athleticism,
- Tre Mason was running back that all the scouts had their eye on, and he put together a nice performance. His 4.5 40 yard dash time ranks him in the upper half of the field, and he was a top performer in the vertical and broad jumps. He also looked stout in the field drills. Today he proved that he was one of, if not the, best running backs in the draft.
- De'Anthony Thomas needed a big performance at the combine, and he went out and disappointed. He had a dismal 4.5 40 yard dash time, which for a guy that's 5'8, is not good. Lache Seastrunk also disappointed and had an even worse 40 time. These guys needed to shine and they did not.
- Brandin Cooks has been my man all season, and he killed it today at the combine. Cooks killed the 40 yard dash with a 4.33 time, and was a top performer in a few other drills as well. In the field drills, he showcased great hand-eye coordination and tracking ability.
- Sammy Watkins had a fantastic performance as well. The guy had a lot of hype going into the combine, and he came through. He had a 4.43 40 yard dash time and showcased great explosiveness in the jump drills. In the field drills, he looked focused and caught most of the passes going his way. He was a top 5 prospect going into the combine, and he is still there after the combine.
- Big receivers Jordan Matthews and Mike Evans both put together equally impressive performance. Matthews put up slightly better numbers in the workout drills, but Evans impressed in the field drills. Matthews definitely helped his stock, because he showed great athleticism for a big man, and Evans helped his a bit, but Matthews was a riser today.
- Kelvin Benjamin had an underwhelming performance in my opinion. Many dubbed him as the big, strong athletic receiver that will wreak havoc in the NFL, and maybe he will, but today he did not show much. He was at the bottom of the majority of the drills, and some can be attributed to his big stature, but he was at the bottom of the 40 times and in the bottom half of the bench reps. He's still an intriguing prospect, but today should make scouts question his athletic ability.
Next up, the defensive lineman and linebackers.

Here are my thoughts and reactions to day 1 of the NFL combine featuring the offensive lineman, tight ends and special teamers.
- The Big 3 (Greg Robinson, Taylor Lewan and Jake Matthews) were the brightest stars in the offensive lineman group as they looked great in the 40 yard dash times and the positional drills. Taylor Lewan was especially great in the workout drills and was at the top of almost every drill. His 4.87 40 yard dash is extremely impressive. Greg Robinson's 4.92 at 330 pounds is also very impressive. In my opinion, Lewan had the best day, followed by Robinson and then Matthews.
- Punters are athletes too! Pat O'Donnell of the U had a 4.62 40 yard dash time as well as 23 bench reps, which is beyond impressive for a punter. He looks very athletic and big too, and he helped his stock quite a bit with this performance.
- Eric Ebron had a good day. He ran a bit slower than what many expected but he did very well in the other drills and gave a good effort. He did not hurt his stock with this performance, but probably helped it a bit.
- Colt Lyerla had a very good day and showcased his very good athleticism. He was at the top of the majority of the workout drills.
- Cyrus Kouandjio had a horrible day and perhaps killed his draft stock. He was considered to be a late first round pick going into the combine, but after his horrible performance, he'll be lucky to be picked in the 2nd round. On top of having a 5.59 40 yard dash time, he was deemed by a few teams to have "failed" his physical and to be in terrible shape. These types of reports kill your stocks.

The NFL Combine starts tomorrow (and ends on February 24th) with lots of big names and stars participating in the event; a lot of questions will be answered. Here's what you should watch for in the combine.
- Blake Bortles will be throwing at the NFL combine, and this will show everyone if he's for real or not. There have been a lot of hyped up quarterbacks in the past that would come to the combine, perform badly and then fall in the draft. For his draft stock to stay where it is, he'll need to have a solid performance and showcase his great arm strength, but more importantly, his touch on the short throws.
- Many see Teddy Bridgewater as a pocket quarterback, and rightfully so, he doesn't scramble much and he has a great arm. The combine will be event to show everyone that he is very athletic, and has good speed. I expect him to have a good 40 time in the 4.6 range and to be better than average in the other tests. He's someone to watch in the athletic tests.
- Tajh Boyd will be an interesting player to watch. He's an athletic player so expect him to be at the top of most of the drills, but be extra attentive when he's throwing the ball. He's been regressing recently, so this could be the event that boosts his stock back up.
- Expect to see some crazy numbers from the wide receiver group. At the top, Sammy Watkins is expected to put up some crazy numbers in the 40, T test and a couple others. Guys like Brandin Cooks and Kelvin Benjamin should be at the top of most of the tests as well. This is a very athletic wide receiver unit, so watch these guys!
- Top tight end Eric Ebron will have a chance to showcase his great athleticism. He had a great year at North Carolina as he was very productive, but what makes him so special is his athetlcism, and nothing is spolighted more at the combine than speed and agility. Those are two strengths of his. He will be a fun player to watch, and I expect him to dominate the majority of these tests.
- There is an interesting battle going on for the top offensive tackle. The battle is between Auburn's Greg Robinson, Texas A&M's Jake Matthews and Michigan's Taylor Lewan. The combine is a great difference maker, and we saw some highly touted lineman fall in recent years due to poor combines. The offensive tackle (of those 3) with the best showing may take the title of best offensive tackle. I'm predicting Robinson to have the best showing, but don't count out the other two.
- We will finally get to see the freakishly athletic Jadaveon Clowney perform at the combine. The guy is gifted and should put on a show at the combine. He predicted that he could "get around 4.4" in the 40 yard dash, and if you know this guy, that's definitely not out of the question. I'm also going to be watching him in the vertical jump test, because 40 inches is not out of the question. Clowney says that "the numbers he will put up will be amazing", and I do not doubt him.
- Anthony Barr is another defensive prospect worth watching. Barr is known for his great athleticism, and it's a major reason why he's such a great outside linebacker. The problem with Barr is that everyone knows that he has such great athleticism, which means that putting up very good numbers won't do much for his stock, and average numbers would hurt his stock badly. There is a lot of pressure on him, and it will be interesting to watch him.
- Florida's Loucheiz Purifoy, Michigan State's Darqeuze Dennard, Florida State's Lamarcus Joyner and Ohio State's Bradley Roby are just a few defensive backs that I will be watching at the combine. The first 3 players are all known for their athleticism, so I expect them to put up great times, and if they don't their stocks will suffer. Bradley Roby is not known for his athleticism, which means he has nothing to lose at the combine. If he puts up very good numbers, his stock will soar and could even leapfrog him into the first round. The cornerback rankings could change a lot after the combine.
- It will be interesting to see how the field does in the 40 yard dash time. It's the most watched event, and there's usually a few sub 4.3 times every year (always from the receivers, running backs and defensive backs). Some predictions for the quickest times include: Dri Archer (RB -- Kent State) and Lache Seastrunk (RB -- Baylor).
