It won't be easy, especially without RB Edgerrin James, but we have some other good running backs and I expect the team to push for the Super Bowl the way it has the past couple of years. Tony Dungy is a great coach. I've already played under him when I first came to Tampa Bay, so I'm very excited about rejoining him with the Colts." King is hoping his career will be remembered by something that has not even happened yet. I've already had a good career and played on a team that won the Super Bowl, but I'm only 29 and feel the best of my career is still ahead of me. I'm happy with my position with the Colts right now, but I do hope to eventually get a chance to start and help a team win a championship. That's what being in the NFL is all about.
