Former Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger was selected by the Indianapolis Colts in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL draft.

Shortly after arriving in Indianapolis for rookie minicamp, an unfortunate tragedy struck the Ehlinger family when Sam’s younger brother, Jake, unexpectedly passed away on May 6.

After spending more than a week at home with his family, Ehlinger is now back with the Colts to participate in in-person work with the team over the next two weeks.

On Wednesday, the Colts announced that they signed Ehlinger to a four-year rookie contract. Indianapolis’ entire 2021 draft class is now under contract.
