Kraft, Saturday meet in the middle — again

INDIANAPOLIS — Nice moment a few minutes ago, as Patriots owner Robert Kraft walked to midfield and shook hands with Jeff Saturday, the Colts’ center.

Kraft and Saturday, of course, bonded during the offseason in helping to bring an end to the NFL lockout. Patriots and Colts aren’t usually friendly, but Saturday remains a great admirer of New England’s heartfelt leader.

“The big shift in this entire deal was when players and owners began to negotiate just in a room by ourselves,” Saturday told NFL Network in July, days after the lockout ended. “And you really began to see men’s personalities and what they believe in stand up and come out. Robert Kraft was instrumental in getting this deal done.”
