• Colts will have full squad when camp opens Saturday

    July 26, 2012 No comments

    The Indianapolis Colts will have a full squad when they report to training camp in Anderson on Saturday after the team signed former Stanford tight end Coby Fleener, the last of the team’s 10 draft picks to agree to a contract.

    Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

    Fleener was selected in the second round, 34th overall.

    Teaming with fellow Colts rookie Andrew Luck at Stanford, Fleener had 34 catches for 667 yards — a 19.6-yard average — and 10 touchdowns last season. In 51 career games, he had 96 catches for 1,543 yards and 18 TDs.

    He had his best game in Stanford’s 2011 Orange Bowl victory over Virginia Tech, finishing with six receptions for 173 yards and three touchdowns.

    Indianapolis signed their third-round pick TE Dwayne Allen earlier in the day. Allen is expected to help Luck transition to the NFL. Colts coach Chuck Pagano and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians say they could use lots of two tight end formations using Fleener and Allen. Luck also is accustomed to giving tight ends a hefty workload from his college days at Stanford.
