RBs Darren Evans, Chad Spann Go to the Colts


I’m hearing that the Colts have signed Virginia Tech running back Darren Evans.  He is an Indianapolis native with good size (6’0″, 227) and a lot of power.    He should be good in short yardage situations and rates as a plus on special teams, but his game is still pretty raw.   He is something of a project but could make it tough on free agents Mike Hart and Dominic Rhodes.

Also apparently headed back to Indy is NIU running back and North Central High School graduate Darren Evans.  He’s short, stocky and pretty fast (5’8″, 198 pounds, runs the 40 in 4.5) and should give the Colts running game yet another look.  Hopefully these signings will quell the continued Reggie Bush talk.
