Colts going two TEs

In the early Manning days the Colts called a two tight end set “Kings.” They ran it frequently with punishing TEs Ken Dilger and Marcus Pollard. 

Those days appear to be returning with the selection of Stanford standout Coby Fleener and Clemson star Dwayne Allen:

“The offense calls for two tight ends who are dynamic and can do different things,” said Allen, sharing what he learned in a phone conversation with offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. 

On back-to-back tight ends, GM Ryan Grigson said: “It’s nice when your board lines up with your needs. It worked out real well. We secured two great football players that were just staring us right in the face.”

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
