Colts Meet With RB Terrance West

Former Ravens starting running back Terrance West visited the Colts on Tuesday, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). West also met with the Eagles last week, so it sounds like his market is starting to pick up. 

At this stage of the offseason, the signing of unrestricted free agents no longer counts against the 2019 compensatory draft pick formula. While West has talent, it seems that teams were waiting out the deadline before engaging with him.

In 2016, West led the Ravens in rushing attempts (193), yards on the ground (774) and rushing touchdowns (five). Last year, however, he averaged just 3.5 yards per carry off of 39 attempts and his season ended in October due to a calf injury.

The Colts will use Marlon Mack as their primary running back this year with Robert Turbin and fourth-round rookie Nyheim Hines mixed in. Christine Michael, fifth-round pick Jordan Wilkins, and Josh Ferguson jockeying for position behind them.
