Last Sunday’s trip to Indianapolis was particularly resonant for Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garçon and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan.
Garçon, who was drafted by the Colts in 2008 and played four seasons there, made his first trip back to Indy as an opposing player. While many of his former teammates from that time have moved on, he carved out a few minutes to connect with a few players, including Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, before the game.
“A lot of great memories in Indy,” Garçon told Redskins.com last week. “Won a lot of games in Indy, grew up in Indy – good times. Great times.”
Kerrigan never played for the Colts but the trip was still a homecoming. After growing up in Muncie, Ind. he graduated from Purdue University. He was able to meet with friends and family before the game and made sure they were rooting for the Redskins.
“I made it pretty clear: either you’re with me or you’re against me,” Kerrigan said with a smile. “If I’m getting you tickets, you’re not going to be cheering for both the Colts and Kerrigan — you’re going to cheer for the Redskins.”
