Drew Stanton knows what it's like to get in on the ground floor of a team rebuild. He also knows what it's like to take a backseat to a number one draft pick: “I think that allows us to all grow together as a core unit,” Stanton said. “I was part of that with (Lions coach) Jim Schwartz when he got to Detroit. Our offense was able to progress over three years. You look at the numbers Matthew was able to put up last year, throwing for over 5,000 yards. Our offense in Detroit, because of that communication factor, was so well-oiled, for lack of a better term.” Expectations are considerably higher for the Colts than they were for Detroit, but Stanton's experience will be helpful for a young quarterback.

Kuharsky on what's next

Paul Kuharsky sees more underappreciated vets with upside in the Colts' future: What’s next: I expect more role players like Zbikowski and McGlynn, more castoffs like Justice and Stanton and more guys who are presumed finished by a lot of teams, like Avery. They are all guys who didn’t cost much but who have upside and can help, at least as role players. And if they don’t...
