Colts signing cornerback Winston Rose
The Indianapolis Colts are signing former New Mexico State cornerback Winston Rose following a successful private workout. Rose was previously with the Los Angeles Rams after going undrafted. He was released and worked out for the Washington Redskins at their rookie minicamp. Rose ran the 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds at his Pro Day. Rose played in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl all-star game. The 5-foot-11, 177-pounder had a 10-3 broad jump and a 36-inch vertical leap at his Pro Day. He bench pressed 225 pounds 10 times. He had a 32 3/8 arm length, 9 3/8 hands and a 74 1/2 inch wingspan. Rose had a 11.13 60-yard shuttle and a 6.72 three-cone drill. Those are among the best of any draft prospect. Rose trains at IX Innovations with Abdul Foster and is represented by Houston-based agent J.D. Ogilvie, a former Utah State football player and Columbia University alumnus. Rose played at Los Angeles Valley Junior College before transferring and was a first-team all-conference selection. He had three interceptions, returning two for touchdowns. He was a first-team all-league wide receiver and defensive back at St. Genevieve High School. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
