Dominic Rhodes Returns to Colts After Shattering UFL Rushing Records


Dominic Rhodes made a name for himself in the UFL this season, and now he's heading back to play with the big boys in the NFL.

The former Indianapolis Colts running back has returned to the team after spending the entire 2010 UFL season with the Florida Tuskers. Rhodes set UFL records in touchdowns (10), rushing yards (547) and al-purpose yards (918).

"The UFL was an awesome experience for me," said Rhodes.  "It was what I needed. It was definitely a blessing. I needed to go there and get that on my back too so I can carry that when I come here (to Indianapolis)."

This will be Rhodes' third stint in Indianapolis. He played with the Colts from 2001 to 2006, and then again in 2008, rushing for a total of 2,812 yards and 25 touchdowns. Rhodes was also a member of the Colts' 2006 Super Bowl-winning team.
