In the early Manning days the Colts called a two tight end set "Kings." They ran it frequently with punishing TEs Ken Dilger and Marcus Pollard.  Those days appear to be returning with the selection of Stanford standout Coby Fleener and Clemson star Dwayne Allen: “The offense calls for two tight ends who are dynamic and can do different things,” said Allen, sharing what he learned in a phone conversation with offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. On back-to-back tight ends, GM Ryan Grigson said: “It’s nice when your board lines up with your needs. It worked out real well. We secured two great football players that were just staring us right in the face.”
