The Colts’ whirlwind additions of veterans continued Wednesday, with their biggest get yet.

Veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson just broke his own news, posting an Instagram photo of himself with Colts coach Chuck Pagano, with the simple caption: “It’s official I’m a Colt.”

Per multiple reports, it’s a three-year, $21 million deal.

This gives him a chance to stick it to the Texans twice a year, and puts him with an excellent quarterback for the first time in his career.

Having put up huge numbers with the menagerie he’s played with (Matt Schaub, David Carr, Sage Rosenfels, Case Keenum, Tony Banks, et. al.), the opportunity to team up with Andrew Luck had to be a huge factor in his decision.
