We wondered earlier today why it was taking so long for the Colts to ink their two remaining rookies from the 2012 NFL Draft: Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen. Later in the day, Jim Irsay did was Jim Irsay does best, which is send out cryptic messages that do more to annoy and frustrate fans than inform and educate.

Soon after that update went out, third round draft pick Dwayne Allen posted a picture of himself signing his NFL contract:

Thus, it looks like one TE is down with one to go.

If Fleener signs his deal today, then it looks like the information John (JMV) Michael Vincent tweeted out earlier today was, indeed, correct. That it took this long to get Allen and (potentially) Fleener signed was troubling, but as long as they are in camp, that's all that matters.

[UPDATE]: The Colts have confirmed the signing.
