Former Ravens WR Kamar Aiken signs a one-year deal with Colts

Free-agent wide receiver Kamar Aiken is moving on from the Baltimore Ravens.

The 27-year-old Aiken signed a one-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, the team announced.

"Kamar is a tough competitor and has shown he can be a consistent wide receiver in this league," Colts general manager Chris Ballard said in a statement. "He adds a nice complement to our wide receiver group and we look forward to watching him compete."

Tuesday afternoon, Aiken tweeted his thanks to the Ravens organization and the team's fans.

Aiken is a possession receiver who got pushed down the Ravens' depth chart last season.

In 2015, Aiken stepped up after Steve Smith suffered a season-ending injury and led the Ravens with 75 catches for 944 yards and five touchdowns. He also set a franchise record with nine straight games with at least five receptions.

But in 2016 Aiken became the forgotten target, managing just 29 receptions as he dropped behind Smith, Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman.
