The Colts are making an addition on offense, and it’s a player they cut six weeks ago.

Free agent tight end Chase Coffman signed with Indianapolis, the team announced this morning.

Coffman spent training camp with the Colts but was cut just before the start of the regular season. He arrives already knowing the offense, which may help him contribute on offense immediately. The Colts’ No. 1 tight end, Dwayne Allen, suffered an ankle injury on Sunday and is expected to miss at least a week.

A third-round pick of the Bengals in 2009, Coffman has also played for the Seahawks, Titans and Falcons.
