Former AAF star TE Nick Truesdell, formerly of the Salt Lake Stallions heads to Tampa Bay for a visit. After working out for the Jets, and from what I hear was quite impressive, will work out in Tampa Bay.
In 2014, Truesdell was invited to the Bengals and Packers rookie camp as well as tried out for the Titans, but was never signed on to a team. However, he played in various indoor leagues until 2016 when he was signed to the practice squad of the Indianapolis Colts in which he was waived soon after.
Following his waving from the Colts he played another two seasons of indoor football, before Heading to the NFL Pro Player Combine in 2017, in which the 6’6 252 lb tight end posted a 4.47 40 time. He impressed a ton of teams which 9 of them, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Cincinnati Bengals, Los Angeles Rams, Atlanta Falcons, Minnesota Vikings, Tennessee Titans, Indianapolis Colts, the New York Giants, threw contract offers at him. He then signed with the Vikings and was waived in the latter half of 2018.
He had plenty of success playing various forms of the sport but never could catch on in the NFL.
During 8 games for the Salt Lake City Stallions, he caught 24 passes on 27 targets for 269 yards, and 3 TDs with a long of 39 yards. He boasts an 11.21 yard per catch average.
Truesdell is in no way a suitable replacement for any of our top three tight ends or even an indicator of any movement of Cameron Brate. He would be capable depth, but I wouldn’t believe he would be anything more than a camp body.
