The Indianapolis Colts signed former Pro Bowl fullback Roosevelt Knicks to a one-year deal, the NFL franchise announced Saturday.

The Knicks spent his five-year career with the Pittsburgh Steelers before being released after being signed as an undrafted free agent by the Atlanta Falcons on the 27th.

The 20-year-old has only caught four passes in 60০ games and received a pass and a touchdown for four yards, which mainly appears on blockers and special teams.

His first career Pro Bowl name was announced in 2017 after making way for Le-Vion Bell to rush for 1,291 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Knicks played three games before being placed on injured reserve on November 7 last season.

The Knicks addition has seen the Colts respond to their roster for the first time on their roster for the first time since 2001. The team has used players from other positions in that role in recent seasons.
