Colts Final 53-Man Roster Projection
5 of 12
Tight Ends: Dwayne Allen, Jack Doyle, Erik Swoope
Released: TE Chase Coffman
Both Dwayne Allen and Jack Doyle are locks to make the Colts roster, but Erik Swoope has gone from a former basketball project to a legit NFL caliber tight end for the team. Through 4 preseason games, Swoope had 10 receptions for 103 receiving yards, actually looking fluid in his routes and catching the football.
The 7-year pro Chase Coffman hung around long with the Colts to his credit, but there’s no room currently for four tight ends. However, he made some plays in the team’s preseason finale, catching 2 early passes for 35 total receiving yards and could get a look from another team seeking veteran depth.
