According to The Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson, the Indianapolis Colts recently worked out former Oakland Raiders cornerback Nick Nelson:

The Colts also received team visits from wide receiver Quartney Davis, defensive back Roderic Teamer, and tight end Andrew Vollert (who was recently released from the team’s practice squad).

Nelson was originally a 2018 4th round pick of the NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders.

The 5’11”, 205 pound cornerback (with 30 3/4” arms) has appeared in 12 career games (3 starts), recording 20 tackles (10 solo), a pass defensed, and a fumble recovery.

The former Wisconsin Badgers’ cornerback was First-Team All-Big Ten in 2017, as he had 35 tackles (26 solo), a tackle for loss, and 21 passes defensed during his junior season.

Of course, the Colts could potentially use additional organizational cornerback depth, as Rock Ya-Sin has already been declared out for this Sunday’s game with a concussion.
