Rick Teverbaugh: Plenty of rookie advice available

(Continued)

Some of what the rookies need to do is physical and some of that is mental. Defensive end Cory Redding provided some strong words about both of those aspects.

“Listen. Work Hard. Do what we tell you to do," said the 11-year veteran who is in his second year with Indy. "Do what the coaches tell you to do. And just come in and just produce. That’s what we need. We need guys to come in and not really want to take their first year as a learning curve and to sit back. You got to come in and go. We need production. We’re here for a reason and we need everybody, all hands on deck, in order to get where we want to go. Everybody pretty much knows where we want to be so we just got to stay focused and get there. So that’s what we need out of the rookies. Come in and get ready to go to work.”

Colts fans would also provide some encouragement to the rookies because injuries are part of the game, and some of these young players may need to step in at some crucial parts of the season.

Cornerback Greg Toler, in his first season with the Colts, offered, “You got to tell rookies to come in and work hard. It’s just run off of OTAs and minicamp, training camp just gets a little bit harder. Guys are clawing and nailing, just competing. It’s football still so just take it one day at a time.”

It was great to see my friends in the media in the gathering Saturday. I colored the fingers of both hands with blue ink just to show my support. The three-week journey has begun.
