Rugby player’s season ends in Indy

Last year, the ability and willingness of Colts G.M. Ryan Grigson to turn over any and all rocks in search of potential talent led him to the Southern Kings of Super 15 Rugby and linebacker Daniel Adongo. This year, Adongo won’t play for the Colts, and probably not for anyone else. After suffering a biceps injury during Thursday night’s preseason opener, Adongo has been waived...

Can Daniel Adongo Crack the Opening Day Roster?

Of all the characters and interesting players on the Colts, there may not be one player with a more interesting background than Daniel Adongo. Adongo spent several years as one of the top rugby players in South Africa. Adongo, at 6’6, 247 pounds is an athletic monster and was one of the scariest players in his rugby league. The Colts took a chance on him and the rest is history...

Colts Countdown to Kickoff: No. 56 Daniel Adongo

In recent memory, it seems that the Colts have pursued several players without having any football experience. Erik Swoope joined the team as a former basketball player. Josh McNary came to Indy after serving a two-year military commitment.Daniel Adongo, however, is slightly different. He is a former professional rugby player from Kenya. While he is already familiar with the physicality...

Colts Notebook: Fullback Action and the Daniel Adongo Quandary

Follow @MarcusDugan In Indianapolis, where old school NBA centers still roam the earth, (albeit somewhat more humbly than a few months ago), another dinosaur of professional sports is clawing its way back from the bygone era of leather helmets, peach basket goals, and La Bohème. Alas, it is not a mask-less hockey goalie or an untainted baseball record, but a strange entity known...

Indianapolis Colts: Daniel Adongo becomes more freaky

According to a recent report from George Bremer, outside linebacker Daniel Adongo has bulked up from 257-pounds to 282-pounds this off-season. That is not a typo, he gained nearly 30 pounds, and he said he has not lost any significant amount of athleticism, if any. This is a scary thought for opposing linemen, tight ends and running backs. The only problem is, Adongo still has to...

Colts in sad shape for playoff run. But, hey…Adongo is a cool story.

It’s true. They are. I’m happy that they beat the Titans in Week 13 to more or less seal the AFC South, but they are going to be in big trouble in the playoffs. This team was able to beat the Broncos earlier in the season, but that was when the apparent genie in the bottle known as Reggie Wayne was healthy. Evidently, every success for this team hinges on him for some reason...

Practice Squad Watch: Colts OLB, Daniel Adongo

Not many outside die hard Colts fans may know about practice squad linebacker Daniel Adongo, but from my recent roster research of the squad, this former rugby player turned NFL pass rusher has the potential to be a force to be reckoned with. The 24 year old is listed as 6’5’’ and 257 pounds and […]

Adongo tries to go from rugby to NFL

At some point early during Thursday’s preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals look over at Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano and you’ll likely see a player wearing the No. 46 jersey standing near him. It’ll be like that in the second third and fourth quarter too. Linebacker Daniel Adongo stood close to Pagano in the first three preseason games. The rookie likes...
