Former Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley is currently an NFL free agent, but he doesn’t plan on staying one for long.
Late last month, McSorley was supposed to be an honorary captain for Penn State’s White Out game against Iowa, but he had to cancel last-minute due to having a meeting with an NFL team.
That team turned out to be the Bengals, and although Cincinnati ended up signing AJ McCarron to backup Joe Burrow, McSorley has reportedly received another shot to work out for an NFL franchise. Per Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, McSorley was one of several QB’s who the Colts have worked out. Other QBs included Ian Book (Notre Dame), Kellen Mond (Texas A&M) and Holton Ashlers. This news comes less than 48 hours after Indianapolis’ starting QB, Anthony Richardson, went down with an injury that’s expected to sideline him for multiple weeks.
With Anthony Richardson sidelined, sources say the #Colts worked out a group of veteran QBs, including Kellen Mond, Ian Book, Holton Ahlers, and Trace McSorley.

McSorley most recently was with the New England Patriots, where he signed in April but got released not long before the start of the regular season.
