JOE REITZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Colts Countdown to Kickoff: No. 76 Joe Reitz

And Reitz was a Colts fan growing up as he played high school football and basketball for Hamilton Southeastern High School in Fishers, a northeast suburb. An All-State football player at HSE, the 6’7”, 320-pound Reitz decided to take his...

Predicting Colts at Chiefs; Chuck Pagano returns to Indy on Monday

Richards: Reitz to Start

Joe Reitz Reportedly Gaining Ground on Starting Left Guard Position

As I've been saying from Day One this offseason, I was pleasantly surprised with Joe Reitz' play at left guard. While the former basketball player wasn't an All-Pro by any means, he did a more than servicable job, and it was essentially his rookie year. He and Anthony Castonzo formed a very good team on that left side before injuries put a damper on the season for both...

Report: Ben Ijalana and Joe Reitz to Compete for LG Spot

The 2012 Colts' offensive line is going to be a completely different from the patch-up job the Colts have had over the last few years.  It has been anyone's guess who will man the guard spots, with Anthony Castonzo, Samson Satele, and Winston Justice all seemingly entrenched in their respective spots. According to a new report from the good folks at Pro Football Weekly...

On the Chopping Block: Joe Reitz

For the next week or so, Andrew Aziz will be breaking down some players who have a lot to prove in the upcoming season. Joe Reitz did a pretty solid job last year considering it was his first year as a guard and he was essentially thrown into the position after the departure of Kyle Devan. He had a few errors, but that's only natural when you're new to a position and...
