The Indianapolis Colts today announced that exclusive rights free agents wide receiver Quan Bray and tight end Erik Swoope have signed their tenders. 

Bray, 5-10, 186 pounds, has played in 15 career games and totaled three receptions for 36 yards, one carry for seven yards, 28 punt returns for 224 yards (8.0 avg.) and 30 kickoff returns for 801 yards (26.7 avg.). He originally signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent on May 5, 2015 out of Auburn.


In 2016, Bray saw action in six games, caught three passes for 36 yards and had one carry for seven yards. He also tallied seven punt returns for 58 yards (8.5 avg.) and nine kickoff returns for 231 yards (25.7 avg.). As a rookie in 2015, Bray spent the first seven weeks of the season on the team’s practice squad before being signed to the active roster and inserted as the Colts primary kickoff and punt returner. He finished his rookie season with 21 punt returns for 166 yards (7.9 avg.) and 21 kickoff returns for 570 yards (27.1 avg.). Despite playing in only nine games, Bray finished the season ranked sixth in the NFL in kickoff return average and 11th in kickoff return yards. Since taking over the duties in Week 8, his 570 kickoff return yards ranked fourth best in the NFL from Weeks 8-17.


Swoope, 6-5, 257 pounds, has appeared in 17 career games (four starts) and compiled 15 receptions for 297 yards (19.8 avg.) and one touchdown. He has also registered six special teams tackles. Swoope originally signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent on May 13, 2014 after playing collegiate basketball at Miami (FL).


In 2016, Swoope saw action in all 16 games (four starts) for the first time in his career and caught 15 passes for 297 yards (19.8 avg.) and one touchdown. He also tallied six special teams tackles. Swoope spent the first 15 games of the 2015 season on the team’s practice squad before being signed to the active roster and appearing in one game. As a rookie in 2014, he spent the entire season on the team’s practice squad.

they'll at least be on the practice squad, but both have shown talent in games. 

i've liked everything ballard has said in the the last few days, (so far) other than cb's having to be tall give me a 5'10" 4.3-, or 4.4 cb with good hands and a good vertical any day a thousand have had great careers compared to maybe a 100 over 6'2", but hey the sport does go through trends like any other.

we need at least 2 new faces in our backfield with adam's retirement and well we need some speed.

i'm not so sure we need to use #15 for a lb, or even a dl, or

another #1 for ol, 

  i think ballard has found plenty of talent already before the draft. and there will be talent in latter rounds.

one thing having manning for so long should have taught us is without a rb we haven't won an afc championship let alone a super bowl, let's not waste years of luck's career..

today they are talking about trading #15 up!!!

if they are that sure of what we have take an edge rusher at #15 if there is still one left, or olb worth a #1 then go after a rb and cb either one at #15 through #3 and use the 3 #4's and #5  to pick up the best talent left. but get a rb in the first 2 rd;

    • I actually thought this thread would be about having the 32nd pick in the first round of the NFL draft. That would ensure that the player would have a 5th year option for us as opposed to the 34th pick or later picks, where we only have 4 year contracts.
    • This is a terrific question and a fascinating thread.  I don't have a full understanding of how compensatory picks work, but draft capital seems to be king now (especially in light of the rookie salary cap vs. out-of-control free agent contracts).  We didn't need the NFL to tell us the Colts had the best draft class of 2018.  I have reason to believe more good decisions will be made in FA and draft 2019, so this is indeed an exciting time.     Based on Ballard's 2 grand slams and other fine picks last year, you bet I'd buy a 3rd rounder with a viable backup QB.  You can't make Keenum's arm stronger and I don't know if even Luck can make Bortles more serious about football, but just having one of them aboard means you could warm up to Brissett offers and jockey for position in April.     I guess you'd have to take a look at your big board vs. team needs, run the numbers, and start wheeling and dealing accordingly.  This "game within the game" stuff is truly fascinating and probably one of the reasons I enjoy Fantasy Football so much.  Thanks for your post Superman.  Good stuff!
    • Maybe Jachai Polite will fall or even Devin White. There's some decent options at the #13 spot. Not sure if Montez Sweat is worth the #13 pick, but he might be with the combine and pro day coming up.
    • He brought in so many talent potential lads into the Shoe last year. These no-name guys are quickly becoming recognizable faces.    Gotta say that last years draft was amped with talent for many levels and positions. Some potentially playoff caliber quarterbacks too.   This year’s draft will be interesting as it could pose a challenge for most teams outside of the top 10. 
    • Maybe Denver or Washington due to cap space. I'm hoping we get a player in return if he ends up going anywhere. I wouldn't complain about getting a pick either.    I can get behind this but not just for DeAndre Baker maybe a pass rusher or interior D-line will fall.
