There's the article, but it doesn't say all that much, other than his contract is for two years.
I've been a fan of Nate's since the first time I found out who he was. I didn't know who he was really, just that he was some guy wearing sweatpants and untied new balance running shoes while playing basketball at the rec center. The next thing I know, he grabs a rebound and smashes it.
He's one of the most gifted athletic people I've ever played any sport against/with.
If it were purely an athletic competition, the Colts just got a lot stronger. But unfortunately football requires a bit of thinking, and that's where Nate falls short. If anyone has followed him at all, you'd probably know that he has a learning disability. I don't think it's "bad" but that combined with his less than stellar work ethic and you get a guy with all the tools in the world, maybe other than height (6'2"), that struggles with the mental aspects.
I can't think of a better player to learn under than Peyton though. If he even soaks up half of what Peyton is going to try and teach him, he'll make some significant progress, in my completely ignorant opinion on the situation.
Either way, Nate is a good guy. I sincerely doubt we'll ever see his name on the police blotter and he has the talent to be a pretty damn good QB if Peyton ever goes down. Hopefully that will never happen, but knowing Nate and the type of person he is, I'm really happy for him that he landed this opportunity.
I just really hope he shows more than Painter, because I really don't want to have to talk bad about him, or even hear it/read it.
