Cody Chrest was anundrafted free agent following the 2023 NFL draft and was signed by the Indianapolis Colts. Less than a week later the Colts released Chrest after their rookie minicamp.
Playing three seasons at Sam Houston State, Cody Chrest appeared in 31 games where he had 131 receptions for 1,715 yards and nine touchdowns.
