Colts sign Stevan Ridley

The Indianapolis Colts signed running back Stevan Ridley.

What It Means:

It's an acknowledgment of how desperately little the Colts have behind 33-year-old starter Frank Gore. Ridley couldn't carve out a role with the Detroit Lions. He doesn't have good roster odds, but his competition is also lackluster, in Robert Turbin, Jordan Todman and Josh Ferguson.

Our models expect Frank Gore to have very little competition in the Colts' backfield, projecting him for 219 carries for 814 yards and 4.90 touchdowns this season.
