On Tuesday, the Indianapolis Colts opened up their first mandatory minicamp of the 2013 season.
The minicamp brings this team together for the first time during the offseason. These practices will give Colts coaches a chance to see the players (both new and old) that will be battling for roster spots this Summer. The minicamp even includes a practice open to the public at Lucas Oil Stadium, where fans get to see a first glimpse of new additions like first round draft pick Bjoern Werner, and new free agent LaRon Landry and Ahmad Bradshaw.
The Colts have loaded up already this year, in order to solidify certain spots that were wavy last season. In order to improve, the Colts have initiated competition in several areas. The offensive and defensive lines both needed an upgrade from last year, and Indianapolis has made a point of putting players in competitive situations, with hopes of turning weaknesses into strengths.
