Horn has reached a one-year deal with a one-year option with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League.
The deal comes three weeks after he was released by the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts signed Horn as an undrafted free agent when the NFL lockout ended on July 26.
â€śIâ€™m just glad to be playing football again,â€ť Horn said in a text message. â€śI feel like I learned a lot in Indianapolis and now I can actually put what I learned in to playing.â€ť
Horn is scheduled to fly out to Calgary to join the team on Monday.
The Stampeders are 11 games into their 18-game season and are tied with the Edmonton Eskimoes for first place in the CFLâ€™s West Division at 7-4.
