The Indianapolis Colts are looking to a name that college football fans are familiar with in light of their sudden need at the quarterback position.

QB Kellen Mond has signed with the Colts to their practice squad, according to a report from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero on Tuesday.
Indianapolis worked out a number of veteran signal callers this week, including Ian Book, Holton Ahlers, and Trace McSorley, including Mond.

The 24-year-old Mond excelled at Texas A&M for four years.
Throughout his four seasons with the Aggies, he started every game.
In 2018, he passed for 3,107 yards and 24 touchdowns, which was his best individual effort. Mond also led Texas A&M to a 9-1 record and a fourth-place finish in the final AP poll as a senior in 2020.

Following graduation, Mond was selected in the third round (No. 66 overall) by the Minnesota Vikings.
Since then, however, Mond has only made one appearance for Minnesota (in 2021).
He joined the Cleveland Browns after being waived by the Vikings in 2022, but he was cut again before appearing in any more games.

With Anthony Richardson looking set to miss significant time, the Colts need more bodies on the depth chart behind new starter Gardner Minshew.
Former Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger is still around too, but now Mond will be joining him in Indy’s QB room.
