Anthrop signed a contract with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent from Purdue, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Anthrop looked set to be a potential impact player in the NFL before tearing an ACL in the middle of his junior season. It took some time for him to get back into form last year in his senior season, but had a career-high 57 receptions. He ran a 4.40 40-yard dash in his pro day to show he's back to full strength. He'll compete for a spot on the 53-man roster this summer.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay hopes to sign Andrew Luck to an extension before the start of training camp, ESPN.com reports.
Even in the wake of a season marred by injuries and mediocre play, Luck has a rock-solid case to become one of the highest-paid players in league history. He recently declared himself healthy upon arriving at voluntary offseason workouts, and there haven't been any real signs of discord between the star quarterback and his employer. Luck will probably sign a mega-deal before the final season of his rookie contract begins, but either way, he'll be one of the top options at quarterback in 2016 drafts.

Ferguson had a productive college career that was limited by injuries. He had 708 yards rushing as a senior with 5.5 yards per carry. Furthermore, he thrived as a receiver with 37 receptions in 2015, while recording eight receiving touchdowns over the past three years. If not for a shoulder injury that sidelined him for three games last season, Ferguson could have reached the 50-reception mark for the third consecutive year. In a Colts backfield that features Frank Gore (age 32) and Robert Turbin (26), it's not hard to envision a scenario where Ferguson gets an opportunity.
The Indianapolis Colts selected Blythe in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 248th overall.
Blythe is fairly quick for a center, but he's also undersized and didn't demonstrate much explosiveness at the Combine. Iowa prepares offensive lineman as well or better than almost any program, though, so the Colts might get a good return on him.
The Indianapolis Colts selected Bates in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 239th overall.
A small school player from Maine, Bates looks like an OLB candidate for the Colts. He demonstrated intriguing athleticism by timing at 6.75 seconds in the three-cone drill at his pro day.
