June 11 (Bloomberg) -- Former New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has agreed to join the Indianapolis Colts, according to the National Football League team’s website.

Bradshaw, 27, had a team-leading 1,015 rushing yards and six touchdowns for the Giants last season. He had surgery this offseason to repair a broken bone in his right foot and was released by New York in February.

A two-time Super Bowl champion with the Giants, Bradshaw rushed for 4,232 yards and 32 touchdowns in six seasons in New York. The 2007 seventh-round draft pick also has 132 career receptions for three scores.

Bradshaw’s 4,232 career rushing yards rank sixth in Giants franchise history. He was due to make $3.75 million next year in New York before he was released, clearing the way for 2012 first-round pick David Wilson and Andre Brown to compete for the starting job.

The Colts rushed for 104.4 yards per game last season, 11th in the 16-team American Football Conference. Rookie Vick Ballard, the team’s leading rusher in 2012, ran for 814 yards and two scores.
