Erik Swoope primed for a bigger role with the Colts
Colts GM Chris Ballard reportedly “really likes” the former Miami basketball player turned tight end who could carve out a bigger role for himself after the departure of Dwayne Allen.
- Colts tight end Erik Swoope played the most snaps in Week 6 when he got on the field for 40 plays after Dwayne Allen’s injury.
- The Colts threw the second most touchdowns to tight ends in the league with 12, behind only the Los Angeles Chargers (15).
- Only five teams threw to their tight ends more than Indianapolis last year (141 times).
- Swoope was second in the league last year in yards per route run among tight ends with at least 20 targets (3.09), behind only Rob Gronkowski (3.18).
