The Indianapolis Colts are no strangers to going north of the border to the Canadian Football League to cherry pick promising talent, so it comes as no surprise that they are preparing to do the same again. According to Arash Madani of Sportsnet.ca , Kory Sheets of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who was the 2013 Grey Cup MVP, will work out for the team.
Sheets is under contract with the Roughriders until February 15, so he wouldn’t be able to join the Colts immediately. However, he could prove to be an interesting addition to the roster in the offseason.
Sheets got his first crack at the NFL by the San Francisco 49ers after going undrafted in 2009, before stops with the Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers.
This season with the Roughriders, Sheets ran for 1,598 yards and 12 touchdowns.
While he may not ever be a workhorse back for the Colts or any other team in the NFL, he is an intriguing option that has greatly improved and he could end up being a key contributor on a team that could use some help in the running game.
