This move concludes a long week of back-and-forth negotiations between the Colts and Bradshaw.'s Ian Rapoport says that agent Drew Rosenhaus and Colts owner Jim Irsay have been hammering out a deal since Friday. They finally closed the deal just in time for the team's mandatory minicamps to start.

Bradshaw, 27, was released by the New York Giants after a series of foot injuries. His surgically repaired foot is now fully healed and he has a good chance to win the starting job over Vick Ballard and Donald Brown. He rushed 221 times for 1,015 yards and six touchdowns with the Giants last season, good for 4.6 yards per carry.
