Coach Chuck Pagano said UDFA TE Erik Swoope was "off the charts" at his first minicamp.
Swoope, 6'5/220, was a four-year player on the University of Miami's hoops squad. This minicamp was his first ever exposure to organized football. Swoope "exceeded our expectations way beyond anything that you’d ever imagine for a guy that never played," Pagano said. He'll have to add weight and continue to show rapid progress to earn a developmental spot on the practice squad. May 26 - 8:37 AM

Colts signed former University of Miami power forward Erik Swoope.

A four-year player on the Hurricanes' basketball team, Swoope has not played organized football at any level. He was not even considering a football career until a representative of the Broncos contacted him in March. The Colts will probably try to stash him on the practice squad as a developmental tight end with the hope he can develop into the next Jimmy Graham. That does not seem likely, but GM Ryan Grigson is proving once again he will search anywhere for talent.
