The Colts haven’t been a real offensively inept team. They were first in the NFL in passing last season at 305.9 yards per game. They already addressed their 22nd-ranked rushing attack by signing Frank Gore. The team did decided to part ways with Reggie Wayne, so Johnson could be stepping in in that regard. The Colts are coming off an 11-5 season in 2014 where it reached the AFC Championship.
