Colts sign a giant offensive lineman from indoor leagues

Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson loves taking a flyer on a player with an unconventional background.

It appears he’s found another, as the team announced they signed former Arena League tackle Jack Breckner.

The 6-foot-9, 320-pound Breckner has played in some of the other indoor leagues, after four years as a starter at Division IIIĀ Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota.

While Breckner might not turn into anything beyond a camp body, he’s at least a very large on.

And after the experiment with former rugby player Daniel Adongo led to his being promoted to the active roster late in the season, the Colts are willing to look under every rock.

Even if they’re very big rocks.

    This game is all about turnovers in many senses of the word. Master that and it’s all over.

    Jack is probably best remembered as the big man on campus at Gustavus Adolphus College.

    Meanwhile, the Raven’s are hoping Aaron Hernandez get acquitted.

    Is it just me, or is this guy not really THAT big? Obviously hes a large man, but there are plenty of tall tackles in the league. And 320 lbs for someone that tall isnt all that huge. Misleading headline

    I dont see him surviving training camp, but i hope I’m wrong. We need all the help we can get on the o-line!

    When I saw the headline, I thought they had signed Jared Lorenzen.

    I always wondered…usually players that play OT in football are pretty good athlete’s …With this guys size..maybe a tryout out DT ( or DE in a 3/4 defense)..his wingspan can’t be taught, he knows OT’s moves, he must be strong as an ox as well…i could see a player like that batting down balls all day
