Mathis, Colts reach terms on long-term con­tract

The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS | The In­di­anapo­lis Colts an­swered one big ques­tion Mon­day — just not that one.

Less than 30 min­utes af­ter us­ing the fran­chise tag on Pro Bowl de­fen­sive end Robert Mathis, the team con­firmed it had agreed to terms on a new long-term deal with the Pro Bowl de­fen­sive end — keep­ing one of the NFL’S most feared pass­ing rush­ing tandems in­tact. The move comes three days be­fore the Colts must make an even big­ger decision about quar­ter­back Pey­ton Man­ning’s fu­ture, but keep­ing Mathis and Dwight Freeney to­gether in In­di­anapo­lis clearly was one of the team’s off­sea­son pri­or­i­ties.
