New Colts General Manager Chris Ballard has been busy rebuilding his new team with middle-class free agents, and he’s found another one.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Ravens wide receiver Kamar Aiken is signing with the Colts.

Aiken visited with the Colts last week and the Seahawks yesterday, and apparently liked what he saw the first trip better.

He adds depth to a Colts receiving group which includes T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and former first-rounder Phillip Dorsett.

Aiken caught 75 passes for the Ravens in 2015, but just 29 last year. He’ll have a chance to add to that significantly in Indianapolis.

  1. I don’t understand. Aiken will get no more chances with Indianapolis than he did with the Ravens. There are a couple of guys ahead of him.You can’t make catches if they don’t throw you the ball. The guy is a pretty good receiver too. But he is a tweener. He doesn’t do any one thing particularly well.

  2. I think you are getting a good possession receiver who got lost in the mix of a bad offense last year. Flacco almost never looked his way, and instead of having him in the game, they threw to the fullback or rookie WR.

  3. Why do people bother signing with Indy? Just because the mouthbreather is gone forever, does not mean Pagano will improve or Irsay will somehow get sober and understand the sport.

    It’s mindnumbingly stupid to openly choose to play for the Colts.

  4. It’s no secret why Aiken had decent numbers in 2015. That’s the year Smith went down early in the season and Aiken assumed a larger role. If he’s a reserve, he’ll have less targets. Nobody believes he’ll get targets at the expense of Hilton, Moncrief, or Dorsett unless one them gets hurt. He’ll have 25-30 catches and 350 yards.

  5. He can have all the targets he can handle at the expense of Dorset. He is a year away from officially being a bust. Aiken might be the only guy on the team that can play the slot. This guy should walk in as the #3 and start in any 3 receiver sets.

    Colts only need one small fast guy on the field at a time. Plus let’s not forget Dorset and moncrief have misssd games due to injury. Don’t see Dorset as anything but fragile. Really like this signing.

  6. I don’t understand some of these trolls out there always doggin luck and the colts. Patriot fans,? Can’t believe they would be that insecure after winning there 5th championship. Besides Irsay threw the garbage out that was responsible for deflate gate.

    Belichick the GOAT, Brady the GOAT by association. There said it, signed colts fan. Truce?

  7. Aiken was an undrafted free agent when the Ravens picked him up, if my memory serves right. And look what he did. He made a name for himself. Good for him. I wish him all the best.

    ANGER TOWARDS COLTS goes alot deeper than deflategate.

    Polian and Dungy, ruined NFL football forever w/the 5 yard rule…which was done because Ty Law and Rodney Harrison abused Manning and Colts receivers in 2004…Not to mention, piping in noise every time NE came to that place.

    Nah, colts are right there w/the jets…Curse of Deflategate lives

  9. Here’s something fun. None of the Raven’s receivers that finished the 2015 season are still on the roster. That shows you how bad it was. Aiken got all the targets as the #1, #2, and #3 option but in a healthy squad he’s probably really #4 or 5. Best of luck in Indy.
