Alec Pierce Stands Out, Michael Young Jr. Looks To...

Day 2 recap: The Colts wrapped up rookie minicamp Saturday at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center. Second-round wide receiver Alec Pierce made a number of impressive catches in the red zone after leaving Friday’s practice after a bit of dehydration, and he felt like he accomplished building the early part of a foundation for the coming weeks and months. “You gotta study a lot, do a lot of things on your own to get ready,” Pierce said. “They throw a lot at you.”

He would know: One of the 22 undrafted free agents the Colts signed on Friday is wide receiver Michael Young Jr., who played with Pierce at Cincinnati in 2020 and 2021.

All in the family: Young’s uncle is former Colts running back Joseph Addai, who won a Super Bowl and earned a Pro Bowl bid in his six seasons in Indianapolis (2006-2011).
