Shane Wynn and Tevin Coleman to be reunited in Atlanta #iufb

Shane Wynn and Tevin Coleman won’t be separated.

One day after Coleman went to Atlanta in the third round of the NFL Draft, the Falcons reached out to Wynn with a free agent contract after the IU receiver went undrafted on Saturday. Wynn’s agent, Ed Wasielewski, confirmed his destination on Saturday evening.

Wynn ran a 4.29 40-yard dash at Indiana’s Pro Day in late March, a time that would have been the second-fastest mark at the NFL Combine. He could profile as a return man in the NFL.

Wynn finished his four-year career at Indiana tied for second in receptions (189), third in kick return yardage (1,854) and tied for third in receiving touchdowns (20) on the Hoosiers’ career leaderaboards. Wynn started the final 36 games of his career and appeared in all 48, standing as the only player in IU history with a receiving, rushing, kick return and punt return touchdown in his career. He is also the eighth Indiana player to record 100 catches and 1,000 yards for his career.

Now he’ll try to latch on and keep his partnership with Coleman going for a few more years.

  1. Wynn is a gifted and tough athlete. What he lacks in height, he makes up for with speed, skill and heart. I think he has a chance of making it in the NFL. And aside from being a return man, he could be a slot receiver. Imagine trying to cover him when he goes in motion! I wish him the best of luck and appreciate the excitement he created during his years at IU.

    Now if we can get Richardson signed, it will have been a good year for Hoosiers.
