$$$$$ The word from Eric Ebron on why he chose the Colts over the Carolina Panthers:
“I fell in love with the coaching staff,” Ebron said about the Colts. “I fell in love with the GM, I fell in love with the staff and that’s kind of what pushed the envelope for me to want to be here. I really felt a lot of love and was shown, a lot of support for my game, my family, the things I wanted to accomplish and at the end of the day, my goals. It was something that I prayed on and asked for a symbol, a light, something to shine and that’s exactly what happened on this visit. It was a no-brainer after that.”$$$$$
