Colts Sign Former Steelers RB Chris Rainey

The Indianapolis Colts have announced that they have signed former Steelers running back Chris Rainey to their active roster today. Rainey was the Steelers 5th round draft pick in 2012, who had explosive speed, and was known for returning a punt or two for a touchdown.

Rainey was released from the team last Winter after being arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend. Many wondered if he’d ever get another shot at playing in the NFL, but the Colts have decided to take a chance on him. He ran a 4.3 40yd dash during a tryout with the Chiefs a couple months ago.
