Colts sign Tashard Choice

Running back Tashard Choice got pink slipped in Buffalo last week, but he wasn’t out of work long.

The Colts announced Monday morning that they have signed Choice while placing Chris Rainey on injured reserve. Rainey joins Ahmad Bradshaw, Vick Ballard and Daniel Herron as Colts running backs to see their seasons come to a premature end this season.

Choice was the third back with the Bills and should slide into the same role with the Colts. Donald Brown and Trent Richardson will continue in the top two rungs as the Colts try to get back on track in the final weeks of the season. They clinched the division on Sunday while getting knocked around by the Bengals, but they won’t be able to back into anything once the playoffs roll around.

Choice probably won’t have much to do with that effort, especially since Rainey was only playing a special teams role, but he’ll be there all the same.

    If not for the RGIII trade, the Richardson trade would easily be the worst in recent NFL history. You could have signed Choice or any other bum off the street to give you what you got out of Richardson, and oh yeah you’d still have that #1. Its not like the Colts could use that #1 pick to fill out the roster. Oh wait…

    Thankfully for the Colts they play in such a crappy division its going to be the 20th pick and not the 10th, but still…

    Tashard was a great team player for the Bills.

    Buffalo has nothing but love for him. He’s a great pick up for Indy.

    Good luck Tashard and stay healthy!

    And he will be the only POS running back that the Colts have on the rosther that they didn’t waste a 1st round pick on.
