This is the third move for the Colts this offseason and it is set up to be a great one. Last year, the Colts’ tight ends were targeted 143 times which is fifth in the league with back up quarterback Jacoby Brissett. With the hopeful return of franchise quarterback Andrew Luck, this number is surely only going to go up.
Last year Ebron had 53 receptions for just 574 yards and four touchdowns. Over his career, he achieved 186 receptions for 2,070 yards and 11 touchdowns. With Pro Bowl tight end Jack Doyle being 27 years old, bringing in a 24-year-old is a great move by Ballard. Head Coach Frank Reich ran a multiple tight end offense in Philly and with this signing, it adds the second tight end that will help the offensive success tremendously. Definitely look forward to his first game as a Colt and future in the Blue and White.
