Colts’ Secret Weapon

The Colts have a lot of weapons on their offense. From Peyton Manning to Dwight Freeney, the Colts have a lot of weapons on their team which has made them one of the most dominant teams for the past decade. The Colts have a new weapon, and he is a secret. An experiment.

He is John Chick, a defensive end coming out from the Canadian Football League. He has had a vast amount of success in the CFL and was signed by the Colts during the 2009-10 season. However, he really didn’t do much. Chick has won the Defensive Most Valuable Player award and has been a great leader with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

However, Chick is trying to make a good roster spot. He’s trying to make the team for Indy. He is currently competing against Ervin Baldwin for the fifth string defensive end spot. Chick isn’t that good to compete with the likes of Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, and Jerry Hughes yet. Maybe never. But he will be a solid contributor.

At 27, Chick can do a lot for the next seven years or so if he commits to the National Football League. He may be undersized at 6’4″ and 248 pounds, but does that stop 6’2″ 245-pound Robert Mathis? Chick can do a lot and I look forward to his contributions on the field.
