The Facts: Ebron is set for a visit with the Panthers on Friday and he reportedly has another visit lined up if he doesn’t strike a deal in Carolina. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Ebron has scheduled a visit with the Colts on Sunday. He’d join Jack Doyle, who led the Colts in receptions with 80 last season, at tight end in Indianapolis.
Diehards Line: Schefter adds that Ebron will “potentially” visit the Patriots after that, but there doesn’t appear to be a date set for such a meeting. Tight end Rob Gronkowski hasn’t revisited his plans for 2018 since the Super Bowl, but, assuming he’s back, the Patriots could be looking for a change from Dwayne Allen at No. 2 anyway. Ebron was released by the Lions on Wednesday before the fifth-year option on his rookie contract kicked in. As a result, he won’t count in the compensatory pick formula for any team that signs him.
