Gary Brackett took time away from his off-season training to talk to reporters about his $33 million contract and $12 million dollar signing bomous that he signed with the Indianapolis Colts.
“I actually left my Pilates class a little early to get here and be in front of you all,” Brackett said at a Friday afternoon news conference. “Pilates, hot yoga, gets a little flexibility in these bones.”
“He’s one of those smart guys,” says Colts cornerback Kelvin Hayden, saying Brackett’s ability to position the defense far outstrips his relative physical limitations.
At 5-11 and 235 pounds, he is not physically imposing, doesn’t run sideline to sideline like New Orleans Saints counterpart Jonathan Vilma and isn’t known as a guy to foment pregame fury among his teammates like Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens.
“He’s a hard-nosed guy,” Colts defensive tackle Daniel Muir says. “He may not be the biggest, fastest, strongest guy, but he knows the game like the back of his hand. He studies it”.
This two-time Super Bowl champion prepare mentally and physically incorporating Pilates into his workout regime to get that extra gear he needs to be the best he can be in one of the toughest and most physically challenging positions in football.
