Ex-BC star and current Colts defensive back Jamie Silva set to return to New England this weekend for his annual football camp 06.22.11 at 11:11 pm ET

Football worlds will be colliding this weekend in Rhode Island.

Jamie Silva has seen both sides of the Colts-Patriots rivalry. The defensive back, a New England native who played at Boston College, was signed by Indy as a free agent in 2008 and has two seasons on the Colts roster as a defensive back and special teamer. (He tore his right ACL in a preseason game last August and was sidelined for the entire 2010 season.)

So when he comes home to Rhode Island this weekend for the second annual Jamie Silva Football Camp ‘€” set for Saturday and Sunday at Pierce Field in East Providence (click here for more information) ‘€” he knows he’€™s going to hear it from at least a few folks.

‘€œIt’€™s funny … I think the kids kind of just enjoy the fact that they’€™re there hanging out and getting taught by NFL players. But some of the parents gave me grief last year,’€ he said with a chuckle.

Silva is used to it by now. After three years in Indianapolis, the Rhode Island native established his bonafides within the Colts’€™ system, having played in 25 games in two seasons of action. (Indianapolis special teams co-captain Melvin Bullitt said Silva deserved to be special teams captain last season before his injury.) In Indianapolis’€™ Super Bowl run in 2009, he played in 14 of the Colts’€™ regular-season games and all three of their playoff games, including the Super Bowl. In addition, his 15 special-teams tackles in the regular season were second on the team.

‘€œHe’€™s a guy who certainly has a lot of spirit, runs around and makes a lot of plays for us,’€ Colts coach Jim Caldwell told reporters last August after Silva went down with his knee injury. ‘€œHe’€™s a quality guy and helped us in a number of different areas.’€
