Some teams seem to have far more than their fair share of talent at certain positions. For the Colts defense, that position would probably be safety. The last time Bob Sanders was healthy for a significant portion of the regular season, he earned NFL defensive player of the year honors (2007). Antoine Bethea was just signed to a lucrative contract extension and earned his second Pro Bowl selection in three years in 2009. Melvin Bullitt has far exceeded his highest expectations to be a solid replacement for Sanders while he recovered from a variety of injuries.
Even behind those three, Jamie Silva is one of the headier backups on the team, a pure football player who uses his instincts and intellect to be in the right place at the right time. He has been one of the team’s top special teams coverage players and emergency punt return specialist when he has been asked as well. To add young, impressively athletic prospects like David Caldwell, Mike Newton, and Donye’ McCleskey to the mix is almost unfair.
