NFL: Johnson joins Colts in search for a title
Andre Johnson just wanted a chance to win a championship. Indianapolis, with Andrew Luck, seemed like the perfect landing spot.
Andre Johnson just wanted a chance to win a championship.
Indianapolis, with Andrew Luck, seemed like the perfect landing spot.
So Wednesday, two days after the Texans released their longtime star, the 33-year-old receiver signed a three-year deal with the Colts. Terms were not immediately available.
Johnson will replace one of his closest friends, Reggie Wayne, and team up with another, Frank Gore, to chase a Super Bowl title.
Jason Worilds spent five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers developing into one of the league's better young outside linebackers. Perched on the edge of a massive payday as a coveted free agent in a thin market, Worilds chose retirement instead.
Worilds, 27, had 251/2 sacks with the Steelers, including a team-high 71/2 last season while helping the team to an 11-5 record and the AFC North title.
Maclin rejoins Reid
When he was recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament a couple of years ago, Jeremy Maclin kept in touch with Andy Reid. The coach had been fired by the Eagles and landed in Kansas City, yet the bond the wide receiver had built with him had endured.
Now, the two of them will have the chance to work together again.
Maclin signed a five-year deal with the Chiefs on Wednesday, giving Reid the kind of down-the-field threat that the franchise was sorely lacking last year.
"This is something I never dreamed could happen," Maclin said.
Tom Coughlin is not going to be a lame-duck coach for the New York Giants.
The Giants extended Coughlin's contract through the 2016 season, a move that was expected.
