Colts sign free agent RB Steven Ridley
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Free agent running back Steven Ridley signed with the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
Ridley was cut Thursday by Detroit, which had signed the sixth-year veteran in April.
Ridley, 5-11, 220 pounds, has played in 60 career NFL games with 26 starts. He went to a Super Bowl with New England in 2011, his rookie year, when he was a third-round selection, and again in 2014, when he was hurt.
Indeed, he's been injury prone, appearing in six games for the Patriots in 2014 and nine for the Jets last year.
He has 685 carries for 2,907 yards and 22 touchdowns in his career.
Indianapolis also waived wide receiver Justin Berger, safety Alden Darby, guard Eric Herman, defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin, tight end Mike Miller, running back Chase Price, cornerback Winston Rose, defensive end Delvon Simmons, wide receiver Josh Stangby and inside linebacker Junior Sylvestre.
