Looks like Joseph Addai will be sharing the load with Rhodes once again!

Addai owners probably want to scoop up Rhodes in the later rounds.

Good move for the Colts, will probably hurt Addai's numbers a bit next year, especially in the final few weeks where they may give both backs an even split of carries to let Addai be fresh for the playoffs.

Good deal for the Colts if Rhodes can keep himself off the substances and out of county lockup. I'm not much a fan of Kenton Keith so I hope this works out well.

More from the Indystar including comments from Rhodes:

Dominic Rhodes rejoins Colts backfield
By Mike Chappell
Posted: May 7, 2008

In one quick move, 14 months of constant frustration gave way to sweet anticipation for Dominic Rhodes.

The veteran free agent running back agreed to a one-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts on today worth about $650,000, reuniting him with the team that gave him his first NFL break, and one he helped lead to a Super Bowl championship.


I can't even share with you the excitement I'm feeling right now, Rhodes said in a telephone interview from Arizona.

good move for Rhodes, I just wonder what it means for Addai's numbers. I can't imagine he'll be stealing too many carries but they might show faith in him considering what he did in the Super Bowl.

Simply another step in the NFL trend of RBBC. It makes perfect sense - Addai is not a large RB, and his body most likely can't take that constant pounding. He would have broken down sooner rather than later had they not made a move like this.

Rhodes needs to put those off-field issues behind him, though, or this all goes for naught.
