The Indianapolis Colts will report to training camp on July 26 with their 90-man roster, which will be cut down to 53 players by the end of the preseason. To pass the time until camp, we're taking a look at every player on the Colts' 90-man roster. Today, we're looking at cornerback Tay Glover-Wright.
Who is he?
Tay Glover-Wright spent time on the Colts' practice squad last year before being signed to the active roster late in the year. He was signed to Indy's practice squad on October 5, where he remained until the team promoted him to the 53-man roster on December 17. He played in the final two games of the season for the Colts, though he didn't record any statistics and saw limited time on special teams. Before signing with the Colts, Glover-Wright spent time with the Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Falcons in 2014 but was waived during the preseason, and then in October the Packers signed him to their practice squad. He remained with Green Bay through the rest of the season and through the 2015 offseason, though he was waived following training camp - which led to his being signed by the Colts mid-season. Glover-Wright played collegiately at Utah State in 2012-2013 as he made the move to cornerback, as previously he had played wide receiver at Eastern Arizona Community College.
What is his role?
The good news for Tay Glover-Wright is that he has experience with the Colts in their system (though the team revamped their coaching staff this offseason), as he worked with them last year while on the practice squad and then, late in the year, on the active roster. The Colts obviously saw enough to want to keep working to develop him, and with his physical gifts and speed it makes sense. With only one spot open at cornerback, however, he faces quite a bit of competition for the fifth corner role, and that means that he might be a more likely candidate for the practice squad out of training camp than the active roster.
What are his chances?
He's an interesting player who the Colts might choose to keep working with and developing - though that could be on the practice squad.
