Here’s Friday’s Reading the Coverage:
Mike Chappell of the Indy Star has a story on how ownership of the Colts is in good hands with Jim Irsay’s daughters once he decides to give them control of the team at some point in the future. Carlie Irsay-Gordon is running the team while her father is at a treatment facility following his arrest last month.
Kevin Bowen of Colts.com posted a story on running back Trent Richardson. Richardson was acquired from the Cleveland Browns for a first-round pick last September. He ended up being demoted late in the season, but he plans to come back a different player next season.
“It’s going to be very, very important for [Richardson] to be here for the offseason program and to dive into this thing full steam ahead, which he will,” coach Chuck Pagano said.
“He wants to be great. He’s got all the talent. He’s got all the ability. We would have never done what we did if we didn’t believe that deep down in our core. So we look for him to have a great offseason and to have a great 2014 campaign.”
