The Indianapolis Colts announced that they’ve signed Olympian Marvin Bracy to a contract on Monday and waived WR Harvey Binford with an injury designation.
Should Bracy pass through waivers unclaimed, he would revert to the team’s injured reserve list on Wednesday.
Bracy, 23, is an American sprinter who competed in the 2016 Summer Olympics and came in third place in the 100 meters. He played college football at Florida State, but left the team in 2013 to pursue a professional career in track.
The Panthers and Cowboys actually worked him out several months ago, but neither signed him to a contract.
Binford, 26, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Lindenwood last May. However, he was waived during the first round of roster cuts and didn’t catch on with another team during the season.
Binford played for the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League in 2015 and 2016. The Cardinals signed him to a contract this past March only to cut him loose shortly after this year’s draft.
The Colts later signed him in June.
During his two years in the Arena league, Binford caught 26 passes for 429 yards receiving and seven touchdowns.
