New England Patriots
Over the past decade, the Colts have rarely used a fullback. It simply was unnecessary with a two tight end system and a quarterback who excelled in using his tight ends in the passing game. That lack of a fullback has caused many Colts fans to forget about the fullback when speculating on the 2012 roster.
It's not just Colts' fans that forget about them though. If your fullback isn't named Vonta Leach or Le'Ron McClain, then the fullback's name likely isn't one at the forefront of your attention most Sunday mornings. It is one of the most overlooked positions in football, right up there with long snapper.
Of course, this overlooking is not by accident. Fullbacks simply aren't that important to today's NFL. The rise of tight ends as dual-threat weapons have slowly squeezed out the fullback, and no signs of a reversal are showing. Nevertheless, fullbacks have an inherent value, and one that the Colts can benefit from in 2012.

The Indianapolis Colts have signed receiver T.Y. Hilton, one of their two third-round draft picks.
He was selected No. 92 overall in April.
Indy has now signed seven of its 10 draft picks. The Colts' top three picks - quarterback Andrew Luck and tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen - are still unsigned.
The Colts are hoping Hilton, Fleener, Allen and Luck will form a young...

The Colts traded back into the third round, sending multiple picks to the 49ers to get the 92nd overall selection and choose Hilton. Hilton was a standout receiver and return specialist at Florida International. At 5-9, 183 pounds, he became Florida International's highest drafted player in school...
Let’s face it, coming into the NFL is a dream come true for many players. Working hard through high school and college to find themselves receiving a call from an NFL team and meeting the commissioner face to face is a big deal and one that would never be forgotten.
After the hoopla of combines, interviews and draft night what is left? The preparing and planning to prove...
A couple of things have come up recently about season tickets that I wanted to respond to.
First, much has been made about whether there's much to make of the recent news that the Colts have yet to sell out their season tickets for 2012. On one extreme are those citing the hiring of Get Real Sports Sales and Jim Irsay's defensive tweets as signs of how dire the situation...
With the news that roughly 3,000 season tickets remain for the upcoming 2012 Indianapolis Colts campaign many in the national media have stated that blackouts are a risk. This is a terrible exaggeration as the risk of a blackout is pretty limited.
To avoid a blackout not all 63,000 seats in Lucas Oil Stadium must be filled. The NFL only requires all non-club, non-suite and non-obstructed...
Two somewhat significant moves were made by the Colts today, starting with the waiving of UDFA safety Micah Pellerin.
Taking Pellerin's spot on the roster is cornerback Korey Lindsey, a seventh round pick by the Bengals in 2011. Lindsey was cut by the Bengals before training camp, and then was claimed by the Arizona Cardinals, which whom he spent most of his time on the practice...
The Patriots brought in seemingly a million wide receivers this offseason, one which was Anthony Gonzalez. Gonzalez is a former 1st round pick of the Indianapolis Colts in the 2007 NFL Draft, but thanks to injuries, he’s played just 2 games over the last 3 seasons, catching 5 passes. The Patriots didn’t have a ton of room at wide receiver and likely just brought Anthony Gonzalez...
The Indianapolis Colts announced that they will be hosting an Open House at Lucas Oil Stadium from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13. The announcement comes on the heels of the Colts employing a marketing firm to attempt to sell the remaining season tickets available for the 2012 season.
The Colts have put together a family friendly schedule that includes some interactive...
The Colts are in the Post-Peyton Manning era, and they are already feeling the effects of it; season ticket sales have dropped and they were forced to find ways to get rid of 3000 tickets.
The Colts are having some trouble finding some butts in the seats. The Colts are about 3000 season tickets short.
