Colts sign former Steelers RB/KR Chris Rainey

Jason Bridge-US PRESSWIRE

Indianapolis is looking for a boost in their kick return game, recently signing former Steelers KR Chris Rainey.

After remaining unsigned for the last eight months, former Steelers running back/return man Chris Rainey has found himself back in the NFL.

He signed a contract with the Indianapolis Colts - the same team that traded a first round draft pick for Trent Richardson earlier this season - after a tryout in Indianapolis Tuesday.

Rainey was released by the Steelers after a domestic dispute found him in trouble with the law. Police detained Rainey after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend - a charge she would later deny. The Steelers released him after his rookie year that saw him emerge as one of the better return men in the game.

He was a lost cause as a running back, and it would seem Indianapolis would be looking to use him as a returner. David Reid has been less than stellar for the Colts in that capacity, and he could be on his way out.

Indianapolis (7-3) plays at Arizona this weekend.
