Colts will receive fifth-round pick from Bills to complete Nyheim Hines trade

When the Bills acquired running back Nyheim Hines from the Colts in November, they sent a conditional sixth-round pick to Indianapolis that had the potential to rise to a fifth-round pick.

The conditions for that pick to increase were met.

As noted by Joe Buscaglia of, the Bills will now send their original fifth-round selection to the Colts to complete the trade.

The details of the conditions have not been made public, but Buscaglia notes they were met.

In nine games with Buffalo, hines was used primarily as a return specialist. He brought back two kick returns for touchdowns in Buffalo’s emotional Week 18 victory over New England and ended up averaging 29.2 yards per kick return and 9.6 yards per punt return for the club.

But Hines was not used much on offense, playing only 66 snaps on the unit. He received six carries and caught five passes for 53 yards with a touchdown.

Hines is under contract for the next two seasons, though he has no guaranteed money left on his deal.
