The Indianapolis Colts were one of the first teams mentioned as possible landing spots for Ray Rice because of his familiarity with Chuck Pagano.
The Colts shot that idea down in a hurry.
With Rice free to sign with any team in the NFL, sources have indicated the Colts have no immediate plans to acquire the running back, according to the The Indianapolis Star.
Rice won the appeal of his indefinite suspension and can begin playing right away once he is signed.
CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported Friday the Colts might an option for the running back because Rice has a close relationship with Pagano.
