The 2012 NFL Executive of the Year, Ryan Grigson, struck gold when he plucked Jerrell Freeman from the Canadian Football League last season. This year, the Colts general manager hopes to repeat his good fortunate with CFL prospects, signing mammoth-sized wide receiver Jeremy Kelley to a reserve contract.

Kelley, who is 6'6, 230 lbs, played in the CFL in 2011 for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. In 2012, he played for the Utah Blaze in the Arena Football League (AFL).

When he played for the Tiger-Cats, Kelley was used primarily as a special teamer. He played his college ball at Maine, where he not only saw time at wide receiver, but at defensive end and on special teams as well.

To give you a sense of how big Kelley is, Coby Fleener (who was drafted early in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft) is 6'6 250 lbs. Fleener plays tight end. Meanwhile, Colts starting wide receiver Donnie Avery is 5'11 200 lbs.

It would seem Kelley was inked as a possible special teams contributor. He ran a 4.57 40 at his Pro Day back in 2010. Not bad for a dude his size.*
