How angry was Donald Brown when the Colts traded for Trent Richardson?

It's clearly served as a motivating spark for the young running back who's put together some solid numbers while competing with Richardson for the starting gig. After another strong performance against the Chiefs in the opening round, Brown's becoming more and more of a household name. Though his on field career showed a young player not ready to take that next step, Donald Brown's wife Mallory Brown would seem to suggest that off the field, the next step hasn't been an issue.

Donald and Mallory Brown (formerly Mallory Counihan) were married in August of 2012 at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in Indianapolis. Shortly thereafter, in February 2013, the couple had their first child. The family lives in Carmel IN, where Mallory owns a bakery called Sugar Coated Indy. Sugar Coated, has a Twitter Bio stating, "If it's #sugarcoated we bake it. Cupcakes, cakes, cookies, pastries (paleo & GF avail) - all made w/ the finest ingredients and love."

Mallory graduated from James Madison in 2008.

As Adam Vinatieri winds down an impressive (Hall of Fame?) career, there are plenty of amazing moments he can reflect on. Vinatieri holds 4 Super Bowl rings, including two of which his own kicks won in the final seconds. He has played on teams with two surefire Hall of Fame QB's in Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, and another who may end up there too in Andrew Luck. But things weren't always so glorious for Vinatieri.

First off, let's start with his college - South Dakota State. Just the name makes me think it's a miserable school. Vinatieri attended the school for 4 years, raking up two Division II titles and school scoring record. None of this impressed the NFL as he went undrafted and wound up playing in Europe. He finally drew the attention of the New England Patriots, who signed him in 1996. This was important for him off the field as well, as this eventually lead to the appearance of Adam Vinatieri's wife Valeri.

How you ask? Well, Valerie Vinatieri is a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader. We're guessing that during one of the Patriots yearly trips to South Beach, Adam and Valerie met and the rest is history. They were married in 2001 in the tropical destination of Bali. The Vinatieri's now have 3 children - AJ, Gabriel and Allison. Surprisingly not much is known about Valerie despite Adam's prominent days in New England. As far as we can tell she does some work with charity and it the past has donated to the Food Bank of Indiana.

By now, most NFL fans have heard news of the Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano being diagnosed with leukemia. However, what many fans across the league may not know is that if it weren't for Chuck Pagano's wife Tina Pagano, the diagnosis may have been significantly delayed.

When Colts owner Jim Irsay addressed Pagano's illness and subsequent time away from the team, he specifically mentioned Tina's involvement in forcing the head coach to get checked out. Irsay said,

"Coach was feeling some fatigue over the last few weeks, and noticed some bruising on his body that he first thought could have been from contact on the field, or coaching, or playing with his grandkids. Through talking to his wife, Tina, she said, 'You need to get that checked out, because the bruising appears to be more and more prominent.' We had the coach get fully evaluated, and the conclusion was that he did have leukemia.

The Colts and entire Indianapolis community have rallied behind the Pagano's through this difficult journey. Most notably, a "Chuckstrong," campaign has begun where Livestrong-inspired merchandise is being sold bearing the Chuckstrong motto with all proceeds to be donated to Leukemia research and foundations.

Chuck and Tina Pagano have three daughters, Tara, Taylor and Tori, and two grandchildren, Avery and Addison (daughters to Tina).
