Colts relying heavily on Robert Mathis to provide pass rush in 2016

Amidst all of the questions surrounding the Indianapolis Colts' pass rush this offseason, there's one constant: Robert Mathis. Mathis is the longest-tenured Colt, entering his 14th season with the team. He's the franchise's all-time leader in sacks with 118 and their all-time leader in forced fumbles with 49. And in 2016, the Colts will be relying on Mathis as much as ever. With questions about who else is going to step up, Mathis is still the premier player at the position and the main pass rush option. Last year, he managed to record seven sacks while working his way back from a torn...

The Indianapolis Colts are in the process of moving Earl Okine from defensive lineman to outside linebacker, hoping that the switch could give them more help at pass rush.

The Colts' outside linebackers coach, Brad White, spoke to the media on Tuesday and expressed his excitement over Okine's transition. “He’s a long, athletic body," White said. "He’s got great position versatility. He can play in and he can play outside. We’re excited...

Undrafted pass rushers Ron Thompson, Curt Maggitt looking to take advantage of huge opportunity with Colts

Ron Thompson and Curt Maggitt, who both went undrafted, signed with the Colts as a result of the opportunity present at pass rush. If you're an undrafted free agent pass rusher looking for a shot to make an NFL roster, there's no better opportunity than the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts desperately need pass rush help.  Their best two pass rushers, Robert Mathis and Trent Cole, are 35 and 33 years old respectively and entering the final year of their contracts.  The other pass rushers all occupy spots where that's not their primary responsibility (such as edge linebacker Erik Walden or...

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...

NFL Mock Draft 2016: Peter King interestingly has Colts taking Taylor Decker in first round

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...

NFL Mock Draft 2016: Latest mock draft has Colts adding pass rusher Noah Spence

SB Nation's Dan Kadar released his latest mock draft today and has the Colts taking Eastern Kentucky pass rusher Noah Spence with the 18th overall pick. It's officially the week of the NFL Draft, and that means two things: first, that mock drafts are nearly done, but second, that there will be a lot of mock drafts released this week. As is his usual custom, SB Nation's Dan Kadar released his latest mock draft on Monday morning, and he has the Colts adding much-needed pass rush help by taking Eastern Kentucky's Noah Spence: This is the range in the draft where there will be interest in...

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...
