A fan favorite of Indianapolis Colts fans everywhere, Jeff Saturday will forever be enshrined with other great players before him when the team adds his name to their Ring of Honor inside Lucas Oil Stadium during halftime of their Monday Night Football game against the Jets on September 21st.

Saturday has always been one of my favorite players to put on a Colts uniform. He's a quiet guy, well-respected by not only his teammates, but players and front office employees of other teams. He was a key component in bringing the owners and players together to end the 2011 lockout, a moment that was immortalized in the photo below.

An undrafted free agent out of North Carolina, Saturday spent 13 years snapping the ball to Peyton Manning and became the anchor of the offense line that won Super Bow 41 in 2007 while representing the team as a member of the AFC Pro Bowl Team on five different occasions.

Although I've never met the guy, he seems like a genuinely nice guy. Someone you could easily walk up to and have a conversation about anything with over beers. The "Every Man", who just so happened to play football at the highest level, and played it very well. His induction as the 12th player on the Ring of Honor is well-deserved, and proof that sometimes nice guys finish first.
