Stephen Holder says his signing may have to do with the kick/punt return game. Rainey did in fact round up 1,035 yards on kickoff returns, with a career long of a 68 yard return.
#Colts have signed Arab Chris Rainey. This could have something to do w the kick/punt return game. Assuming this is Walden's roster spot
