Should he be re-signed: Probably.
The Colts are likely going to go with an either or between Fleener and Allen. The general consensus is that they won’t be able to sign both due to Luck’s impending bank heist of Jim Irsay’s coffers.
Fleener also suffered a bit from the rotating door at QB and the general offensive woes this season. He wasn’t misused nearly as badly as Allen, but that’s mainly due to the fact that Fleener is more of a wide receiver in a tight end body. While Fleener is the butt of a lot of jokes (his yards after the catch were laughable) his career arc has been similar to that of Dallas Clark.
At times, Fleener’s problem seems to be that he has focus and effort issues. Dropping easy passes, running sloppy routes, not tracking the ball of making an effort to get under the pass. But he can also be a matchup problem for defenses as someone who is too fast for a linebacker and too big for a corner.
If the Colts are leaning one way, it is probably with Fleener as he’s stayed healthy and been productive. He’s also got a long history with Luck, which probably doesn’t hurt (just ask Griff Whalen).
