The city of Indianapolis and Indiana Sports Corp are planning to pitch their plan to host the NFL Draft as early as 2024. The Indianapolis Business Journal says that Visit Indy held preliminary talks with the NFL about hosting the 3-day event through a 5-year window from 2024 through 2028. Word is that this is the best opportunity for the city to host the showcase event. City officials are planning to meet with the NFL this fall to further discussions. Those talks have included ways to activate area attractions around the city including Georgia Street, Monument Circle, and the Indiana Convention Center.

We are 6 days away from the start of the 2018 NFL season and many teams have high hopes including my favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers once again are one of the top teams in the AFC with a chance to go to another Super Bowl. Just as a repeat of last year, this doesn't come without some distractions as star player LeVeon Bell has yet to sign his $14.5M franchise tag and appear to Steelers camp. LeVeon was rumored over the weekend to appear in Pittsburgh on Monday, but today came and still no LeVeon."We are disappointed Le'Veon Bell has not signed his franchise tender and rejoined his teammates," general manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement Monday.

With the 15th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft the Indianapolis Colts Select.... The Colts selection of Malik Hooker was not only a need option, but he was also the best player available. Some could argue that the Colts should have taken Reuben Foster or Johnathon Allen with the fifteenth pick, but ultimately Malik Hooker was the best decision that the Colts front office could have chosen. Hooker was red-shirted his freshman year at Ohio State, had limited playing time his sophomore season, and blew up as a First Team All-American his junior season. Hooker did not compete at the NFL combine due to two January surgeries on a torn labrum (hip) and a sports hernia. He did however, draw a lot
Per league sources, the Colts have released VP of Football Operations, Jimmy Raye III, on Monday. Raye III was strongly considered as a candidate to take over the GM position after the Ryan Grigson firing, and also served as the Interim GM during the search. This move comes very shortly after the Colts fired the head of the scouting department on Sunday. It is very clear that new GM Chris Ballard is set on completing a team overhaul, and is true to his word about bringing in his, "own guys." A name to keep an eye on is, Ed Dodds, the Seattle Seahawks Senior Personnel Executive. It seems Chris Ballard has had Dodds on his radar for some time, and now could
