According to ESPN’s Field Yates, the Indianapolis Colts hosted Miami Dolphins free agent offensive tackle Julie’n Davenport for a visit on Thursday:

The former 2017 4th round pick of the Houston Texans played the last two seasons for the Dolphins, appearing in 24 games (9 starts).

He’s appeared in 52 career games with both the Texans and Dolphins, making 28 starts.

The 6’7”, 313 pound offensive tackle (36 1/2” arms) might project more as a swing-tackle than the immediate heir apparent to longtime retired left tackle Anthony Castonzo though:

Per PFF, Davenport received a +71.3 overall grade this past season—including a +87.6 pass blocking grade, during a limited 53 overall snaps (and 1 start).

From Stampede Blue’s own Zach Hicks:

Davenport isn’t great, but if the signing is just purely for additional offensive tackle depth, he might still be an upgrade to both Chaz Green, J’Marcus Webb, and whoever else the Colts were trotting out there last season—or at least it would be hard not to be, right?
