Breaking News: Colts LB Zaire Franklin Has A ‘Classy’ Message As He Calls Out Texans, C.J. Stroud…

Colts linebacker Zaire Franklin is already gearing up for the upcoming season, and he’s got his sights set on a particular rival and quarterback. During a recent appearance on the “Green Light with Chris Long” podcast, Franklin didn’t hold back in expressing his anticipation for facing off against the Houston Texans and their quarterback, C.J. Stroud.

Franklin didn’t mince words when discussing the Texans, labeling them as a team he’s eagerly looking forward to competing against. Regarding Stroud, he expressed a mix of admiration and readiness to face the challenge, mentioning the quarterback’s confident demeanor and their previous interactions.

The Colts’ playoff exit at the hands of the Texans in a tense Week 18 matchup still stings for Franklin and his teammates. Despite their early postseason departure, Stroud’s standout performances against the Colts, including impressive passing stats, have remained a topic of conversation.

Franklin recounted a moment at the Super Bowl’s Radio Row where Stroud boasted about his success against the Colts, prompting a wry response from Franklin about the definition of victory.

Adding fuel to the fire, Franklin pointed out that Stroud has yet to face Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson, who was sidelined due to injury during their previous encounters.

With odds favoring the Texans in the AFC South division, Franklin’s remarks have likely intensified the anticipation for the upcoming clashes between the Colts and Texans. As both teams prepare for the new season, Franklin’s words serve as motivation for spirited competition on the field.
