The Indianapolis Colts officially signed veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson this afternoon, and immediately fans and players alike began reacting to the news.
Johnson was a player the Colts really wanted to get and they got the job done, with Ryan Grigson living up to his reputation as "the closer." He will step in and play the veteran possession receiver role that the Colts really were lacking, and it's a great fit for both sides.
A number of Colts players loved the move as well, and they took to twitter to react:
