Despite a PED suspension and a torn Achilles, Robert Mathis seems to still be an integral part of the Indianapolis Colts future.
The Colts signed the feared pass rusher to an extension on Tuesday according to reports.
The #Colts announced a contract extension for OLB Robert Mathis through 2016. He’s on Injured Reserve for this year.

Mathis was suspended for the first four games of this season for a violation of the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
He would have been eligible to re-join the team this week, but he tore his Achilles tendon while working out on his own during his suspension and has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.
