Colts check out a few veteran tight ends

The Colts drafted Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen in 2012, a pair of players they likely expect to occupy the tight end position for at least the next few years.

You never know when injury might strike, however, and the team checked out a few players who could serve as insurance policies this week. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Colts worked out Dante Rosario while Albert Breer of the NFL Network adds that they also worked out Randy McMichael and Cornelius Ingram.

Rosario had one big game for the Chargers in 2012 when he caught four passes for 48 yards and three touchdowns against the Titans in Week Two. He had just six catches and 47 yards the rest of the year, however, and pretty well fits the journeyman label after playing for four different teams in the last three years.

McMichael also played in San Diego last season, finishing with nine catches in 16 games as a complement to Rosario and Antonio Gates. McMichael, who has also played for the Dolphins and Rams, turns 34 in June. Ingram was a fifth-round pick of the Eagles in 2009, but tore his ACL in training camp. That made two straight ACL tears for Ingram, who has spent time on practice squads with the Lions and Broncos without playing in any regular season games.

    Smart move. Fleener could turn out to be a bust.

    Is it just me or does Grigson seem to second guess himself a lot?

    He drafts Fleener and Allen, then drafts Justice Cunningham and then looks at a couple of free agents. hmmm….

    It almost is the same thing as signing Walden and Sidbury in free agency and then drafting Werner.

    Its almost like he has no confidence in who he’s already obtained.
