INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts are giving running back Chris Rainey another chance to resume his NFL career.

The Colts signed Rainey, a former fifth-round draft pick, on Wednesday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers cut Rainey during the offseason after he was accused of slapping his girlfriend.

Rainey was also ticketed for driving with a suspended license and given a citation for “defiant trespass” at a racetrack casino last year, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Rainey rushed for 102 yards on 26 carries as a rookie with the Steelers.

Kickoff return is where Rainey could be most valuable for the Colts. David Reed, the team’s current returner, has made bad decisions with his returns, often leaving the Colts with poor field position.

Rainey returned 39 kickoffs for 1,035 yards an average of 26.5 yards per return.
