Albert Wilson isn’t the flashiest free agent wide receiver available this offseason, but he could fit in well with the Colts.
The Colts haven’t really had a reliable third option at wide receiver during Andrew Luck’s tenure in Indianapolis, and general manager Chris Ballard should be looking to add one this offseason.
Kansas City’s Albert Wilson probably isn’t talented enough to be a second outside wide receiver, but he could be a good fit in the slot in Indianapolis.
Wilson is coming off of a career year where he gained 554 yards on 8.9 yards per target with 3 touchdowns. At only 25 years old, Wilson’s best years may be ahead of him, and he’s never played with a quarterback as talented as Andrew Luck.
Chester Rogers was the third wide receiver on the depth chart last season. Wilson’s numbers from last season alone are comparable to Rogers’ statistics from the first two seasons of his NFL career.
The Colts probably wouldn’t have to break the bank to bring in Wilson as a free agent. He could even be the fourth receiver on the depth chart if Chris Ballard decides to spend money on a couple of free agent wide receivers and/or pick up a top pass-catcher in the draft.
I think Wilson could be a reliable third or fourth option at wide receiver for a team that hasn’t had much depth at that position lately.
