According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Indianapolis Colts are trying out former Washington Football Team tight end Jeremy Sprinkle:

Originally a 2017 5th round pick by Washington, the 26 year old tight end has 34 receptions for 301 receiving yards (8.9 ypr. avg.) and 3 touchdown receptions during 59 career games (33 starts) over the past four seasons.

At 6’5”, 255 pounds with 34 12 “ arms and 10 34“ hands, Sprinkle has some impressive physical measurables and tools to work with on the football field:

Of course, the Colts could use additional depth at tight end, as while veteran Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) will presumably return, it’s looking increasingly likely that free agent tight end Trey Burton won’t re-sign as the team’s primary ‘move’ tight end next season.

Sprinkle would have a chance in Colts training camp to compete for a spot on the team’s 53-man active roster—with a potential opportunity for a much more prominent role (depending on what Indianapolis elects to do at tight end in the upcoming NFL Draft).
