AFC Notes: Colts, Ravens, Steelers


Colts LT Anthony Castonzo, who is entering the final year of his contract, said Thursday that last year rejuvenated him physically. 

“My body honestly feels better right now than I think it did my rookie year stepping in here … It’s pretty crazy what they’ve done, and it’s just making me feel good,” Castonzo said, via “And it’s exciting. It’s exciting to be able to be going into a season at age 30 possibly playing my best football.”

Castonzo mentioned that he loves the team’s new strength program and his knees have had “no pain.”



Former Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert says he felt like he disappointed some fans after dealing with injuries last year.

“I felt like I disappointed a lot of people in Steeler Nation,” Gilbert told ESPN. “It hasn’t been easy.”

When you go from playing at a high level, then you’re not out there on the field, and you’re getting a lot from the fans, the coaches and teammates can’t rely on you because you’re not out there — all those things mount, and it’s tough,” Gilbert explained. “Nasty tweets, lots of questions, and you read the articles. Athletes can say that doesn’t bother them, but you see it.
