YOUNG COLTS TIGHT END GROUP FLOURISHING IN PEP HAMILTON’S OFFENSE

Posted by Kevin Bowen on June 7, 2013 – 7:30 am

When taking a glance at the Colts new offensive scheme during OTAs a number of things stand out.

One of the more intriguing observations over the past month has been the role of the tight end in Pep Hamilton’s new offense.

As the practice days go by, numbers 80, 83, 85 continue to find themselves stretching the field, hauling in receptions for large chunks of yardage.

“It’s definitely more of a focal point this year,” tight end Weslye Saunders said of the role of the tight end in the Colts new offense.

“They are definitely expecting more things out of us in the passing game and in the running game as well. It’s definitely exciting to have more of a vital role in this offense.”

Saunders joined the Colts early last season and has been a frequent target with OTAs coming to a close on Thursday afternoon.

The Colts tight end group does not bring much to the table in experience but makes up for that in versatility.

There’s the 23-year olds in Dwayne Allen and rookie Justice Cunningham.

One year older comes Saunders and Coby Fleener.

Dominique Jones is the eldest statesman at the age of 25.

We are probably by far the youngest tight end group in the league,” Saunders said. “But it’s pretty excited especially with the amount of strides those guys are making and we haven’t even made it to training camp yet.”

Late in OTAs, Fleener is one name that has begun to garner attention with some impressive catches in traffic and his ability to utilize a 6’6” frame.

Fleener was a terror scoring touchdowns during his one season with Hamilton as his offensive coordinator at Stanford.

The progress of Fleener is being observed around the Colts locker room, including by a certain Pro Bowler receiver.

“I see (Fleneer) growing every day,” Reggie Wayne said. “I think this offense is something that he’s more familiar with and may help him out even more. He’s already a big kid, so hopefully he can just grasp everything, as he’s been doing.

“I really believe the sky is the limit for him.”
