After my successful college career at Minnesota, I was rather disapointed to not make the NFL draft. But I persisted and was signed as an undrafted free agent with the Indianapolis Colts. I made the team's opening day roster in 2005. Maybe its something about being a free agent, I think we try harder. I played on special teams gained a bit of notoriety as a hard hitter. In 2006 I was second on the team in special teams tackles with 19. I was blessed to play a part in the Colts historic Super Bowl run of 2006. I earned a Super Bowl ring on February 4, 2007, as we won Super Bowl XLI with a score of 29–17 over the Bears at Dolphin Stadium in Miami.
