Mountaineers in the Pros: Colts Sign Former WVU Receiver Gary Jennings to Futures Contract



The Indianapolis Colts have signed former West Virginia wide receiver Gary Jennings to a futures contract.

Jennings was originally drafted into the NFL in the fourth round of the 2019 draft by the Seattle Seahawks. Jennings has bounced around a few teams since then, including the practice squads of the Miami Dolphins and the Baltimore Ravens. He has appeared in one career game, with Miami in 2019.

Jennings played at WVU from 2015-18, compiling 168 receptions, 2,294 yards and 17 touchdowns. Jennings is the second former Mountaineer to sign a futures contract since the end of the 2020 NFL regular season, joining former WVU long snapper Rex Sunahara.
