Colts embrace global flavor inside locker room
“You’re representing the whole island every time you pull that jersey on, you’re representing your mom and dad,” Havili said, explaining that’s a traditional part of Polynesian culture. “My dad provided for eight kids by driving a bus, and he still drives a bus, and I think about that every time I come out here on the field. It motivates me.”
“My father works in the financial industry so he took a job in Tokyo, and then we lived in Germany briefly, too,” Cleary explained. “My dad thought he met Andrew’s dad at some party over there (in Germany).”
The big question now is which of these players will still be around for Indy’s season opener, Sept. 8 against Oakland.
Cherilus, Freeman, Luck and Vinatieri are all entrenched starters. Jean Francois and Franklin are expected to play key roles in Indy’s revamped defense. Havili is trying to become the first true fullback to make the Colts roster in years, and the Colts are being patient as Werner makes the transition from college defensive end to NFL linebacker.
“Football is getting more and more global,” Cleary said.
Notes: In addition to cutting Rumble, the Colts also put seventh-round draft pick Justin Anderson on the injured-waived list with a pectoral muscle injury. If Anderson clears waivers, he will go on the Colts’ injured reserve list. To fill those spots, Indy signed linebacker Shawn Loiseau and safety Ashante Williams. Loiseau spent part of last season on Indy’s practice squad. Williams is an undrafted rookie.
