INDIANAPOLIS – The vast majority of roster moves that happen during training camp go rather unnoticed.

On August 11th last year, the Colts signed veteran safety Tavon Wilson.

At a position where the Colts appeared to have pretty good depth, Wilson came to Indy and ended up being needed for more than a veteran presence.

Wilson started 2 games for the Colts in 2020, which was a far cry from the role he had in Detroit in 2019.

In Indy, Wilson played 219 defensive snaps. For the Lions, Wilson logged 840 snaps, in starting 13 games.

The Colts mainly had Wilson on the roster for safety depth, a special teams presence and that veteran presence.

What is the 30-year-old Wilson looking for in his 10th NFL season?

Chris Ballard has always liked having a proven vet in his secondary, similar to what we saw from Mike Mitchell in 2018.

Does that make Wilson a possibility to come back, if he’s accepting of another limited role?
