Colts 2014 minicamp begins today

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

LaRon Landry will, supposedly, finally show up and work with his teammates.

Mandatory minicamp for the 2014 Indianapolis Colts begins today and lasts for three days. After that, the Colts won't be together - in an organized team capacity - until training camp opens on July 23rd.

All players under contract are required to attend minicamp. This includes safety LaRon Landry, who famously avoids team offseason programs like OTAs in favor of training with his own people. This week's minicamp is the first time Landry has worked with his team since the playoffs in January.

During last years minicamp, head coach Chuck Pagano was raving about Landry, referring to him as "special" and a "difference maker." Landry was anything but during the 2013 regular season, and in the playoffs the Colts surrendered 513 total yards to the Chiefs and 44 points to the Chiefs along with 419 yards and 43 points to the Patriots.

Since Landry was so very terrible last season, often looking lost in Pagano's defensive backfield, the thought heading into the offseason was that maybe Landry would re-think his training regime and actually, you know, spend time at the team complex this offseason learning to play in this defense.

Unfortunately, Landry opted not to do that, which might explain why the Colts opted to sign veteran safety Mike Adams last week. Minicamp will be the first opportunity we'll get to see Adams in his new Colts uniform.

Mike Wells of ESPN posted a good article breaking down the Landry storyline entering minicamp, along with a few others, including the blackhole that is the center position, the evolution of Bjoern Werner, and the most important player entering the 2014 season for the Colts, Trent Richardson.
