Doesn't have many catches

Seems like a blocking TE/special teams player.

Yep. If blocking is all we want from this TE, that is all they will use him for if he ever sees the field on offense.

Colts add Brandon Williams to tight end mix

It’s been a busy offseason at tight end for the Colts.

They re-signed Jack Doyle and traded Dwayne Allen to the Patriots in a pair of early moves. Monday brought a new arrival to the group with the team’s announcement that they’ve signed Brandon Williams.

Williams served as the third tight end with the Seahawks last season and caught two passes for 36 yards. He had four catches for 44 yards in his first three NFL seasons, all of which came while he was with the Panthers in 2014, and has been a regular on special teams units.

Erik Swoope rounds out the Colts tight ends currently under contract. This year’s draft is thought to be strong at the position, so the Colts may make further additions to the group before the offseason is out.

Well we definitely need more than 2 TEs.

The guy is JACKED. Hasn't played much in his career but hopefully he can turn into a monster TE for us.

We'll have 90 players on the roster soon, they can't all be stars.  We need guys in camp who know how the NFL works, even if they're just considered 'camp bodies'.

 

I'm sure we'll bring in more guys like this, as well as a rookie or two, to try out for the TE positions. 

 

Good solid no frills signing.

Come on man, there are going to be 90 guys on the roster pretty soon and not all of them are going to be up for all pro status.

 

You need camp bodies who know how the NFL works, that have actually played in games.  Can't have all rookies and UDFAs.

This signing is the first that doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I'd much rather draft a TE later in the draft (rounds 5-7) in a loaded class than sign someone with hardly any production.

I am almost positive we will take a TE in the draft.  Why get upset over camp bodies.  I agree.

 

Ready for the draft and some waiver wire victims.

Might just be a camp body to compete. You don't want to go into camp with just three TEs. Then there really isn't any competition. Everyone knows who is making the roster then. I believe last year we signed two TEs to compete with Doyel, Swoop, and Allen. We could still draft a TE in the later round draft or UDFA. If they don't preform better than Brandon Williams then we keep him and throw them on the practice squad. If they do better then we cut him.

Would still like to grab TE OJ Howard out of Alabama in the draft, though.

The only way they get Howard is if they take him at 15. And even so I doubt the brass is interested in doing that.

It's correct. He'll be a blocker/ST. Unless Doyle and Swoope BOTH go down in a game, he'll never see a ball come his way.

What kind of talent does he have? Any good tape out there on him?

 

I've never heard of him.

This signing has absolutely zero impact on whether or not Ballard & Company draft a TE.

    • I love the talent in their def but I think luck had Wades number lol he's eaten up his defense  in wins/losses
    • A punch to the gut was how it was said to be by Pritchard. Bird sure left Pritchard a total mess. None of this is surprising to me about how the NBA direction is going. None of this is ever going to change as long as there is not a hard cap and the NBA gets paid for super stars getting put on the same teams. This started years ago with the Celtics. They always had the best teams money could buy and then when the cap come in they invented what is called the Larry Bird exception. Then the NBA seen the chance to cash in by letting teams pay them for going over the cap. Then the owners were getting paid by high dollar TV deals and couldn't care less about putting winners on the court as long as they were making money. Now the NBA is made popular by fans who really are not interested in watching basketball played in it's original form. All they want now is highlight dunks and three pointers. Defense has been lost forever right along with traditional basketball. Sad for those who remember the real basketball.
    • Fact is Pagano went 8-8 without Luck after using 5 different QBs with one of them coming right off the street. But it's things like this that gets overlooked by those who choose to. Moral superiority?? You have to be joking. That's even taking it over the top and is getting to the point of pure unaltered childishness.
    •     Sounds like we are seriously considering Lance Stephenson at starting point guard if Jeff Teague's     price is to high..   ..I know he's motivated to play hard and well but that's not something I'd be considering
