Colts Have WR Phillip Dorsett Available For Trade

Mike Lombardi of TheRinger mentioned during an appearance on the “Rich Eisen Show” that the Colts have third-year WR Phillip Dorsett available to trade if any team is interested.

“He’s available in trade,” Lombardi said. “You can have him if you want him.”

According to Lombardi, the Colts want to a larger receiver who can block in spread formations, given that Dorsett and T.Y. Hilton are shorter players.

At this point, it’s unlikely the Colts would be able to get any more than a late-round pick for Dorsett, but it’s at least possible a team could show interest in the coming weeks.

Dorsett, 24, is a former first-round pick by the Colts in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is entering the third year of a four-year, $8.135 million rookie contract that included $6.591 million guaranteed.

Dorsett stands to make a base salary of $1,174,582 this season to go along with another $1,094,373 in 2018. The Colts will have to decide whether to pick up Dorsett’s fifth-year option next year.

In 2016, Dorsett appeared in 15 games and caught 33 passes for 528 yards receiving (16 yards per reception) and two touchdowns. Dorsett also rushed for 10 yards on two carries.
