Why Are The Colts Working Out All These Tight Ends?

Donald Miralle

The Colts show interest in free agents Dante Rosario, Randy McMichael, and Cornelius Ingram.

As reported last week by the intrepid Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun and NFL Network's Albert Breer, the Colts worked out former Chargers tight end Dante Rosario, his former teammate in San Diego Randy McMichael, and former Broncos tight end Cornelius Ingram.

The big question here is: Why?

The Colts have second-year tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen. They also have third-year Indiana native Weslye Saunders and the "Mr. Irrelevant" selection in this year's draft, Justice Cunningham.

For a team that already has a significant amount of depth (and money) invested in tight ends, why workout retreads like McMichael, Rosario, and Ingram?

It's possible the workouts are just to see if certain players are healthy, and these players might interest Indy further on down the line if injuries occur. Also, it's worth noting that new Colts' V.P. of football operations, Jimmy Raye, was the director of player personnel in San Diego for the time both Rosario and McMichael were there.
