The Colt's summer training camp in Anderson, Indiana, has concluded on Wednesday, but the team is still continuing to develop. After three weeks away, the team is returning to Indy in preparation for the quickly approaching season.

Throughout the camp, the the star of the show has been the offense. From Donte Moncrief developing as a player, to T.Y. Hilton continuing to deliver results, and Hakeem Nicks making a name for himself, the team seems to be putting a formidable offensive combination together.

A core part of that offense will be Reggie Wayne, who appears to be back in top form after recovering from his torn ACL. He currently stands 1,015 yards behind Marvin Harrison for the franchise record of receiving yards, and it may be possible he'll earn the title this year.

Following last week's game, the camp received a special visit from a famous former Colt. Edgerrin James arrived Saturday to spend some one-on-one time with Trent Richardson, in order to mentor him on how to mesh better with the team and put up bigger numbers. Statements on Richardson have been optimistic throughout the duration of camp, and the arrival of James further demonstrates how much interest the team has put into him.

James also made statements reaffirming his belief in Richardson, saying, "This is the NFL; you can't just sign someone thinking they can come in and be a star no matter how good they have been. It takes time. Now he has a chance to put in the proper time and the proper work and get to know his teammates, and get to know the different plays so he can go out and play like he did when he came out of the University of Alabama.

As the camp wrapped up, Pagano also spoke on why he felt the experience of leaving Indianapolis for training camp was worthwhile, despite being difficult. He was quoted as saying, "It's a strain on everybody, but I still think there are benefits to getting away. being together, the sacrifice you have to make, you limit your distractions because your whole focus has to be on football. It can't be on anything else."

The Colts will face the New York Giants August 16th at 7:00, where their focus will be put to the test.
