The Indianapolis Colts have signed tryout DB Dante Blackmon to a contract on Monday.
“Signing with the Colts felt like a dream come true,” said Blackmon, via KSUOwls.com. “To be one of the five guys to sign out of about 47 guys that came on an invite was the best feeling and a blessing. The process was a good one. I loved everything about it and I just competed at my highest level and controlled what I could control. Now it’s time to go to work. This is just the start. I can’t thank Kennesaw State University and Coach Bohannon and the rest of the coaching staff enough for the opportunity to transfer in and play ball for the Owls.”
Blackmon wound up going undrafted out of Kennesaw State a few weeks ago before securing a tryout with the Colts last week.
During his college career, Blackmon recorded 50 tackles, 17 pass defenses, two fumble recoveries, eight interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown and a blocked kick over the course of two seasons and 22 games.
