Colts take flyers on veteran receiver, big-armed young quarterback

INDIANAPOLIS — The Colts have added a pair of interesting names to their 2021 roster.

One because of the position he plays, the other because of his history in the NFL.

Indianapolis signed veteran wide receiver J.J. Nelson and second-year quarterback Jalen Morton to reserve/future deals Monday, bringing the total number of players they’ve added since the end of the season on reserve/future deals to 26.

A player on a reserve/future contract allows teams to sign any player who did not finish the season on an NFL roster to a contract that begins when the league year opens in March.
