Colts Worked Out 5 Players Including Veteran TE Rob Housler

According to Adam Caplan, the Colts worked out five players on Tuesday including veteran TE Rob Housler on Tuesday.

Other players the Colts worked out include TE Kennard Backman, DE Alex Bazzie, DE Josh Boyd, and TE Ryan Malleck.

Housler, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Cardinals who played out his rookie contract with the team. The Browns wound up signing him to a one-year, $1.76 million contract back in April of last year, but Cleveland wound up waiving him from their injured reserve.

The Bears later signed him to a contract and decided to extend him for another year in March. Unfortunately, Chicago elected to release him in September.

Housler has worked out for the Raiders and Packers since becoming a free agent but was not signed to a contract.

In 2015, Housler appeared in 10 games and recording four receptions for 33 yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Boyd, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Packers back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.25 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season when the Packers waived him this past May.

Boyd has worked out for a number of teams becoming a free agent including the Seahawks, Bears and Raiders. Unfortunately, he was not signed to a contract by any of those teams.

He has been working his way back from a serious ankle injury that ended his 2015 season.

In 2015, Boyd appeared in two games for the Packers after he suffered a torn ligaments in addition to a broken bone in his ankle and was subsequently placed on season-ending injured reserve.
