The Indianapolis Colts may be looking to add some much-needed talent to a secondary unit that has been susceptible to giving up yards.

But the potential move comes with some baggage.

The Colts worked out defensive back Jalen Collins on Wednesday afternoon, per ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates.

Collins, a 2015 second-round draft pick from LSU, earned his first ever four-game suspension during the 2016 season for a violation of the NFL’s Performance Enhancing Drugs policy. A year ago, the Atlanta Falcons waived Collins after he was handed a 10-game suspension for violating the PED policy a second time.

Collins has playoff experience, however, starting for Desmond Trufant — who tore his pectoral muscle at the time — in a Super Bowl loss against the New England Patriots. Collins has two interceptions, 10 passes defensed and 42 tackles in 24 career games.
