Ridley, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Patriots back in 2011. He played out his rookie contract before signing a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Jets back in April of last year.

The Lions signed Ridley to a one-year contract this past April before he was cut last week. The Colts signed him to a contract less than a week ago.

In 2015, Ridley ran for 90 yards on 36 carries (2.5 YPC) to go along with four receptions for -minus two yards receiving and no touchdowns.

Smith, 23, was taken in the third round of this year’s NFL draft and signed a four-year, $3.314 million contract that included an $808,846 signing bonus. He stands to make a base salary of $590,000 for the 2016 season.

Indianapolis placed Smith knee on short-term I.R. with a knee injury just a few weeks into the regular season last year.

In 2015, Smith was limited to four games in which he made one tackle and recovered a fumble.
