Ahead of the 2023 Draft, the Indianapolis Colts are holding a three-day voluntary minicamp, and a free agent wide receiver will be attending on a tryout basis.

Before the Indianapolis Colts turn their attention to the 2023 NFL Draft, they will be holding a three-day voluntary minicamp. Since Shane Steichen is a first-year head coach, the team has been given some extra opportunities to get acquainted with the new head coach and Indy is taking full advantage.

While the attendance list of this voluntary minicamp isn’t public, it’s safe to assume that a fair share of the team’s veterans are there, because the Colts typically have good attendance for the offseason program. Additionally, Indianapolis is trying its hardest to get back into contention, so it only makes sense that guys would show up for this three-day minicamp.

One name that we do know is in attendance is a player that isn’t on the Colts. Free agent wide receiver Slade Bolden is attending the minicamp on a tryout basis as he tries to find his footing in the NFL.

Wide receiver Slade Bolden trying out for Colts

Slade Bolden attended the University of Alabama, where he played as a receiver for three years. During his time at Bama, Bolden caught passes from Tua Tagovailoa, Mac Jones, and Bryce Young. He finished his three-year career playing in 30 games, and catching 68 passes for 712 yards and four touchdowns.

Bolden came out of college during the 2022 Draft, but went undrafted. He signed with the Baltimore Ravens following the draft, but was eventually placed on inured reserved and released. Since then, Bolden has been trying to find his way on to a roster.

He had a workout with the New England Patriots but they haven’t reunited him with Mac Jones yet. Bolden also participated in Alabama’s 2023 Pro Day to get on teams’ radar. Now he’ll have the chance to impress the Colts and make the roster.

Indianapolis has Michael Pittman Jr. and Alec Pierce as it’s top receivers, but lost Parris Campbell in free agency. However, Indy did re-sign Ashton Dulin, and also added Isaiah McKenzie. Slade Bolden could be the next addition to the Colts wide receiver room, but he will have to prove himself during the three-day minicamp.
