Colts working out Quartney Davis and Paul Perkins
— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) November 14, 2020
Davis is a 6’0”, 200 pound wideout that was initially signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Minnesota Vikings this past April. He was waived as part of the team’s final 53-man roster cuts in early September.
Davis caught 54 receptions for 616 receiving yards (11.4 ypr. avg.) and 4 touchdown receptions during 11 games as a junior for Texas A&M during the 2019 season.
Meanwhile, Perkins is a veteran running back, who was originally drafted by the New York Giants in the 5th round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
In addition to the Giants (2016-19), he’s also spent time with the Detroit Lions (2019), Jacksonville Jaguars (2019), and Baltimore Ravens (2019) organizations.
The 4-year veteran has 165 career carries for 575 total rushing yards (3.5 ypc. avg.) and 0 rushing touchdowns during 29 games (5 starts)—having suffered a season-ending pectoral injury in 2018.
Both of these workouts could simply be the Colts performing their due diligence on potential insurance policies—should future injuries arise at either wide receiver or running back. The team likes to continue to bring players in for workouts to churn in-and-out prospective talent.
