TweetDeck : #Colts WR Parris Campbell on a “taxing” injury-filled rookie year, the new routine he hopes keeps him available, getting back to 100% this offseason & the role he hopes to play in Indy in 2020.

"I feel like if I’m on the field it’s an advantage for us."

TweetDeck : New #Colts DT DeForest Buckner expects his role as a 3-tech in Indy to be similar to his with 49ers.

“When you’ve got a dominant 3-tech that can split double teams in the run game … (and is) effective in both aspects of their game, it’s a game-changer. Everybody benefits."

TweetDeck : After a “very taxing” rookie season with multiple injuries, ending on IR on Dec. 9 with a broken foot, Parris Campbell says he’s been back to 100 percent and running routes the last couple months.

He says sticking to a strict routine and playing in every game are his main goals.

TweetDeck : We’ve seen the Jim Harbaugh, Peyton Manning and Adam Vinatieri “This Is SportsCenter” commercials.

But recently Steve Levy helped unearth a never-before-aired Bob Sanders spot.

TweetDeck : Rich Eisen just asked Peyton Manning if he would follow Eli and join Twitter: "I wouldn't hold your breath. I used to have a flip phone up until a couple years ago."

TweetDeck : “The rookie’s size, toughness and ball skills gives him the edge.”

“Now let the beast eat.”

Why Dan Parr believes #Colts WR Michael Pittman Jr. & RB Jonathan Taylor are among NFL rookies “in the best position for success” in 2020:

TweetDeck : » Pumped about bounce-back seasons for DE Kemoko Turay & WR Parris Campbell.
» Always keeping an eye on OL depth.
» And, yes, he loved watching Peyton Manning and “The Match.”

Top takeaways from #Colts head coach Frank Reich’s conference call today:

colts.com/news/frank-rei…

TweetDeck : Reich said he talks to his coordinators every week to curate ideas and make sure the virtual meetings are engaging for the players.

Team is switching from four sessions a week to three sessions a week for the rest of the offseason program.

TweetDeck : Reich on WR Parris Campbell after injury-plagued rookie year:

"I see things in Parris — I see really good wide receiver skills. Deceptive power and I really think he’s got the footwork where he can play inside or out.”

TweetDeck : Reich said the acquisition of DT DeForest Buckner was "the opposite of a perfect storm in a good way.”

"It was the key need for our defense, it’s the pivotal position for that defense. … I think Colts Nation should be excited.”

TweetDeck : Reich says DE Kemoko Turay has all the speed, get-off and instincts that great pass rushers have, but he has that “extra 10% of bend” that makes some guys elite.

Turay went down for the season Week 5 last year, but Reich/staff are really excited about his prospects in 2020.

TweetDeck : Why does Reich believe rookie wide receivers, with some obvious exceptions, tend to struggle to immediately make an impact in the NFL?

"I would just say the quality of press coverage at this level is so much better than the quality of press coverage at the previous level."

TweetDeck : Reich pn the prospects of the NFL getting rid of the one-year pass interference challenge rule (Colts were one of few teams to get one reversed): “I think it’s the right thing right now. … For now we’ll chalk it up to experience and it’s the right thing to put it aside."
