The Indianapolis Colts have officially agreed to terms with former Detriot Lions tight end Eric Ebron on a two-year deal worth up to $15M.

Smith High School graduate and former Carolina Tar Heel, was released last week by the Detroit Lions, the team that made him a first-round pick in 2014. If Andrew Luck (shoulder) is able to play a majority of the upcoming campaign, Ebron could benefit further in weekly box scores. It is possible Ebron will see time in the slot this season.

Ebron was a servicable tight end in his first four seasons but never caught more than five touchdowns in a single year.

Ebron appeared in all 16 games for the Lions in 2017, making nine starts, and he finished the year with 53 receptions for 574 yards and four touchdowns.

Bills sign C Russell Bodine, OT Marshall Newhouse
Rather than overspending in what's left in the market, taking fliers on Bodine and Newhouse makes more sense for the Bills. Both also bring a wealth of experience and, instead, may be seen as preferred depth over untested younger players.

For Ebron, this is a new opportunity for him to turn his career around and get a fresh start with the Colts.

Colts.com says that one-by-one, a different member of the Indianapolis Colts' coaching staff reached out to the tight end to entice him to sign a free agent deal.

It's not likely to be the last move made by general manager Chris Ballard, who has long espoused he prefers to draft and develop players rather than overspending in free agency. Ebron said. "I've always been a fan of trying to make something better, and I feel like I can do that with my talent and my abilities here".
