Colts draft Maine outside linebacker Trevor Bates in seventh round of NFL Draft

In the sixth round, the Indianapolis Colts have drafted Maine outside linebacker Trevor Bates with the 239th overall pick. Bates was a defensive end at Maine but will play outside linebacker in the Colts' 3-4 system, adding help as a pass rusher.  He had a private workout with the Colts during the draft process, and the Portland Press Herald reported that a Colts scout worked him out during his pro day to test his speed and agility, where he "shined."  Bates said that he has spent time during the pre-draft process gaining speed, losing weight, and working on his footwork to play...

Robert Mathis would be "more than willing" to sign extension with Colts to tutor younger pass rushers

Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis, who is entering the final deal of his contract, tweeted today that he'd be "more than willing" to sign a one-year extension to help tutor younger pass rushers for the Colts. It's no secret that the Indianapolis Colts really need to address their pass rush this offseason.  Of the four outside linebackers on the Colts roster, one is a rookie (Eze Obiora) while the other three are all at least 30 years old and entering the final deal of their contracts (Robert Mathis, Trent Cole, and Erik Walden). Because of that, the Colts will almost certainly have to...

In his latest mock draft, the MMQB's Peter King has the Colts taking Taylor Decker in the first round, a pick made curious by King's comments on Alabama center Ryan Kelly. Seeing as we're just a few days away from the NFL Draft, the Monday Morning Quarterback's Peter King has decided to get in on the mock draft fun and release his predictions for the first round. Though King's mock draft is interesting and involves another trade for a top-five pick, his pick for the Colts is expectedly boring, as it's the same pick many others have had throughout the process: King has the Colts taking Ohio...

Tom Brady's four-game suspension reinstated by U.S. Appeals Court

A U.S. Appeals Court today reinstated Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension over his role in Deflategate. Today, a United States Appeals Court sided with the NFL and reinstated the four-game suspension of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady over his actions in the Deflategate mess from last year. Basically, the Court's ruling was simply about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's authority in disciplining Brady for his actions in accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement, which the NFL Players Association agreed to.  The Court (rightly and as expected) found that Goodell...
