Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich has made no secret about his affinity for the tight end position, and a week into training camp, we’re starting to see slivers of how much he envisions using the likes of Jack Doyle, Eric Ebron, Erik Swoope, and Ross Travis in the coming weeks and months.
For starters: a lot.
The story said Doyle and Ebron might’ve been the two most active pass-catchers in Tuesday’s workout, and expect Ebron—the free agent from Detroit—to work all over the field. He has lined up on the end of the line, in the slot, out wide, and has even joked about begging Reich for handoffs out of the backfield. Ebron is athletic enough to look like a wide receiver; don’t be surprised if Reich uses him like one come the regular season. Reich comes from the Eagles who used three TEs a lot last year, including Trey Burton, who was the team's third TE.
