Colts rookie receiver wanted to be QB


Wearing a quarterback’s number isn’t a major stretch for Indianapolis Colts receiver LaVon Brazill.

And the 5-foot-11, 191-pound rookie couldn’t be happier.

“I was a Packers fan growing up. It was great earlier this season getting to go up against the guys I’ve been watching like Charles Woodson, Donald Driver, Greg Jennings and Aaron Rodgers,” Brazill said. “They were my favorites, but it’s all Colts now, baby.”
