Fountain, 25, was one of five tryout players at Chiefs rookie minicamp this past weekend. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound receiver first entered the league as a fifth-round pick out of Northern Iowa made by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Fountain appeared in one game in 2018, missed 2019 after having ankle surgery in August of that year and appeared in five games for the Colts in 2020. He has two career catches for 23 yards. In his final season at Northern Iowa (2017), Fountain caught 66 passes for 943 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Fountain should factor in as a training camp receiver who meets the height (6-0) and weight (200-plus) threshold the Chiefs were after at the position this offseason. He is likely a long shot to make the 53-man roster but perhaps may find a spot on the team’s practice squad.
