The Colts have agreed to sign running back Robert Turbin, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Terms of the deal are not yet known, but it’s hard to imagine this being anything more than a one-year deal.
During his first three NFL seasons, Turbin served as Marshawn Lynch‘s primary backup in Seattle, compiling 928 rushing yards on 231 carries, along with another 427 yards on 43 receptions, from 2012 to 2014. In September of 2015, however, the Seahawks waived Turbin off of their IR shortly after acquiring veteran Fred Jackson. Since then, Turbin has bounced around a bit, seeing time with the Browns and Cowboys in 2015.
The 26-year-old appeared in three games for Cleveland before being shown the door. In those three contests, the tailback ran the ball 18 times for 60 yards, adding another eight yards on two receptions. After an unremarkable 2015, we haven’t heard much about Turbin’s free agency up until today’s agreement with Indianapolis.
