ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts have decided to give wide receiver Nu’Keese Richardson a chance for a pro career.

The 23-year-old Richardson is a 2009 University of Tennessee recruit who was kicked off the team late in his freshman season after pleading guilty to one count of attempted robbery outside a Pilot gas station in Knoxville, Tennessee. He signed a deal with Indianapolis on Sunday night.

The Colts brought in Richardson a little over a week ago for a private workout, which ended with a lengthy discussion about expectations as a professional and a member of the football team. Richardson was also asked how he has changed his life since the arrest.

For Richardson, it’s a chance to jump start his football career.
