Back in 2010, Peter King implied that the Colts and quarterback Peyton Manning were always worried that the Patriots had bugged the visiting locker room, via Yahoo Sports.
“I’ve always heard, reliably, that the Colts never trusted that they were totally alone in the Colts’ locker room in Foxboro, and that when Manning had something of strategic significance to say to offensive coordinator Tom Moore, they both stepped outside into the concourse outside the locker room,” wrote King.
During an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, Manning’s former coach Tony Dungy confirmed King’s story.
“That is very true,” Dungy said with a chuckle, via Business Insider. “As Peyton talked to guys who played for the Patriots and some of the guys who came over [to the Colts], whether it is true or not, he treated it as true and we didn’t have a lot of strategy discussed inside the locker room [at Gillette Stadium].”
