Least Likely? OJ Howard
OJ Howard is intriguing if the Indianapolis Colts opt to bring in a younger, unproven player at the position. You can argue that he has a higher upside than anyone else available. Howard never reached his true potential after reaching the league, but it is unlikely that the Colts will want to take a risk at the tight end spot considering the number of questions across the roster.
Maybe? Jared Cook
Jared Cook would form a great pair with Kylen Granson. Their styles compliment each other well, and Cook is a well-respected veteran whose word will carry weight in the locker room. His best years are behind him, but if the Colts miss out on some of the better options, they could do far worse than to bring Cook in on a one-year deal.
Most Likely? Zach Ertz
Zach Ertz caught 74 passes for 763 yards during the 2021 campaign, proving to still be a reliable option at the tight end position. The Colts just sent Carson Wentz away, but Frank Reich has a great relationship with Ertz and knows what a great fit he would be in Indy. Another move that makes too much sense not to pursue.
