Colts Acquire WR-David Reed in Trade with Baltimore Ravens

The Indianapolis Colts today acquired wide receiver David Reed in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for running back Delone Carter.


“This trade gives us a chance to improve in key areas moving forward,” said General Manager Ryan Grigson. “David is a very competitive football player and we welcome his style of play and energy. At the same time, we wish Delone well with his opportunity to play for another first-class organization and we thank him for his efforts.”


Reed, 6-0, 195 pounds, has appeared in 29 career games with Baltimore, totaling 39 kickoff returns for 1,150 yards (29.5 avg.), including a 103-yard touchdown return. He has also contributed with 19 special teams tackles. As a rookie in 2010, Reed led the NFL by averaging 29.3 yards per kickoff return, recording 616 yards on 21 returns. He also posted a then-Ravens-record 103-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to open the second half at Houston on December 13, 2010. Following that performance, he was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.


Carter was originally selected by the Colts in the fourth round (119th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft. For his career, he has played in 26 games (three starts) and has registered 499 rushing yards and five touchdowns to go along with six receptions for 31 yards.

    They said the same for DHB but he’s playing pretty well now in training camp, limiting his drops and he looks every bit as good as any other receiver on the quick slants.. so people can improve in the right environment. I hear they call that ummm change of scenery.

    How is this trade stupid? Carter was never going to see the field this season. He was arguably the most worthless player on the colts roster last season. There was no way he was even going to make the team this year. Might as well take a shot on someone else.

    Good luck to Delone, was probably not in Colts future. We should be willing to try anything in the return game give David Reed the opportunity.
