Report: Grey Cup MVP Kory Sheets to work out for Colts

One of Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson’s first moves upon taking the job before the 2012 season was signing linebacker Jerrell Freeman away from the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL.

Freeman has been a tackling machine in his 29 starts over the last two seasons for the Colts, which may be part of the reason why the team is reportedly set to take a look at another Saskatechewan product. Arash Madani of Sportsnet.ca reports that running back Kory Sheets, the MVP of this year’s Grey Cup, will work out for the team.

Sheets spent time with the 49ers in 2009 before moving onto the Dolphins later that season. He had one carry for five yards for Miami and then missed the 2010 season after injuring his Achilles in preseason. He went to Canada after getting released the next year. Sheets ran 287 times for 1,598 yards this season and added 197 yards and two touchdowns to help Saskatchewan to the title.

Sheets is out of contract with the Roughriders on February 15, so there won’t be any immediate signing in Indianapolis. There’s also plenty of time for other teams to take a look at a player who would earn a huge raise by landing a job on this side of the border.

    Desperate much?

    What I took away from this article is that anyone who can average 5 yard per carry for the Dolphins is definitely worth taking a look at.

    Hey Irsay, good job on that Richardson trade! Its not like this team could use a 1st rounder on the oline.

    CFL RB can move, the field is much-much bigger but it does suggest the Trent Richardson deal has been given disaster status.

    I remember him with the Niners. I had high hopes for him and was sad when he left. Nice to hear he is doing well.

    Could be useful as a KR and/or change of pace back from Ballard and Richardson if Brown signs elsewhere this offseason.
