INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Indianapolis Colts will continue their offseason roster makeover by adding Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Kamar Aiken.

According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Aiken will sign with the team. Aiken visited with the Colts last week and met with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday. Tuesday evening, the Colts made the deal official.

Stephen Holder with our media partners at the IndyStar reported that Aiken will ink a 1-year deal with the team. DEC Management, the firm that represents Aiken, said Aiken would sign his deal with the Colts Tuesday.

Aiken had a breakout season in 2015, when he caught 75 passes for 944 yards and five touchdowns—all team highs that year. Last season, he caught only 29 passes for 328 yards and one touchdown.

Aiken, who played college football at the University of Central Florida, originally signed with the Buffalo Bills as a restricted free agent in 2011. He spent time with the Chicago Bears and New England Patriots before earning a roster spot in Baltimore.

A young receiver with good size (6’2″, 215 pounds), Aiken will add depth to a receiving corps that currently includes T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett.
