Colts Worked Out Eight Including WR Sammie Coates

According to Howard Balzer, the Indianapolis Colts brought in eight free agents for workouts in recent days including WR Sammie Coates.

The full list of tryouts for the Colts includes:

  1. WR Sammie Coates
  2. WR Greg Ward
  3. WR Taj Williams
  4. LB Sam Eguavoen
  5. QB Jon Jennings
  6. QB Bo Levi Mitchell
  7. OT Dakoda Shepley
  8. LB Jameer Thurman

Coates, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Steelers back in 2015. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $3 million contract and set to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2017 season.

The Steelers traded Coates to the Browns last year for a 2018 sixth-round pick. Cleveland elected to waive Coates back in March and he was later claimed by the Texans. Houston cut him loose last month.

Since becoming a free agent, Coates worked out for the Cowboys but was not signed to a contract following the session.

In 2018, Coates appeared in 12 games for the Texans and caught one pass for 12 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
