NFL free agent news: Eric Ebron signs two-year deal with Colts

The Colts added a playmaker Monday, announcing a two-year deal with tight end Eric Ebron.

Ebron, the 10th overall pick in the 2014 draft by the Lions, was released by Detroit last week. Ebron hauled in 61 receptions for 711 yards in 2016, and followed that up with 53 receptions for 574 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Indianapolis already has Jack Doyle on the roster, and he caught 80 passes for 690 yards and four touchdowns last season. It’s possible Ebron will see time in the slot this season.

After the Clippers were badly beaten 117-95 by the Jazz in Utah on Thursday night, Doc Rivers gave his team the day off before playing the Nuggets.

“Watched film, watched the Masters, went out and played nine,” Rivers said. “What can you do? We don’t have enough bodies in practice. You’ve got to get your mind ready.”

Nuggets: Host the Portland Trailblazers on Monday night.

Clippers: Host the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night.

According to The Athletic, the “Worldwide Leader in Sports” is hiring John Fox as an NFL studio analyst.

He has a 133-123 record in his career and was the head man for the Panthers when they went to the Super Bowl in 2003. Fox also coached the Broncos when they made it to the Super Bowl in 2014.
