After a wild weekend, Ryan Grant finally selected a new home.

The receiver signed with the Indianapolis Colts, NFL Network's James Jones reported, according to sources informed of the decision.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that it's a prove-it deal for one year worth $5 million.

Grant originally agreed to a $29 million contract with the Baltimore Ravens during last week's free-agent negotiating period. The deal was subsequently voided when he did not pass a physical with the Ravens because of an ankle issue.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Grant said he's healthy.

"...If there was an issue with my ankle, then I wouldn't have passed the physical with the Colts and the Raiders.

"I can't control what [the Ravens] did. I can't control their assessment of my ankle. I've gone other places, I've seen multiple doctors and I've passed physicals; so that should pretty much speak for itself."

Apparently, the Colts don't have any concerns about Grant's ankle. The receiver has not missed a game in his four-year career in Washington. Grant passed his physical with the Colts on Saturday, Rapoport previously reported.

The 27-year-old receiver lands in a good spot with the Colts. Indianapolis owns a big need at receiver opposite Pro Bowler T.Y. Hilton after the team lost Donte Moncrief to the Jaguars in free agency.

Grant is a solid secondary receiver coming off the best season of his career, earning 573 yards and four touchdowns on 45 receptions with the Redskins in 2017.
