Want to feel old today? Ken Griffey Jr.'s son, Trey, has joined an NFL team.

The wide receiver signed with the Colts this past weekend as an undrafted free agent, per ESPN. Indianapolis did not select a pass catcher with any of its eight draft picks in the 2017 NFL Draft.

As a senior last fall at Arizona, Griffey caught 23 balls for 382 yards and two scores. The 6-foot-3 wideout's collegiate career was highlighted by a 95-yard touchdown reception against rival Arizona State in 2015.

At least "The Kid's" kid can say he got drafted, though. The Seattle Mariners took him in the 24th round of the 2016 MLB Draft, an homage to the No. 24 jersey Griffey Jr. rocked during his days at The Kingdome and Safeco Field. The wideout, however, has not played competitive baseball since before his high school days.

Griffey Jr. was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2016, and is currently sixth with 630 career dingers. Meanwhile, the Colts hope to have hit a home run of their own by nabbing his son on the open market.
