The Indianapolis Colts made Trey Griffey, son of Ken Griffey Jr., part of their 18-man undrafted free-agent contingent just after draft weekend.

Briggs signed a reserve/futures contract with the Seahawks in January but was cut to make room for Seattle's latest rookies. He played collegiately at Southern Mississippi (2011-2013) and at Southeastern Louisiana (2014-2015), and combined at the two schools he played in 41 games (starting ten) and caught 37 passes for 536 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 14.5 yards per catch.

Trey Griffey, who was signed by the Colts on May 4, reportedly missed at least a week of practice last week due to injury, and the club waived him with the "injured" designation.

As for Griffey, if he clears waivers, he will revert to the team's injured reserve list. He had 79 catches for 1,241 yards and six scores in 44 games at Arizona before joining the National Football League franchise.

The Colts did not take any wide receivers in the 2017 NFL Draft, but have T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett on its roster. Ken Griffey Sr. and Ken Griffey Jr. enjoyed lengthy MLB careers, with the latter being one of the greatest outfielders in baseball history. He played 13 seasons for the Mariners.

The Colts have mandatory minicamp from Tuesday through Thursday.
