INDIANAPOLIS — It’s grown cold out. Gray skies linger overhead with whispers of snowfall, but here inside Lucas Oil Stadium, the NFL Scouting Combine is heating up.
As Bill Polian stated this week, the combine — an event once tucked away in the shadows — has morphed into a “football trade show” of late, with one NFL personality wheeled out after another.
Day 2 in the press room shouldn’t disappoint, with another heavy dose of coach and general manager news conferences, along with the anticipated arrival of QBs Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III.
