On Wednesday, two days after the Texans released him, wide receiver Andre Johnson signed a three-year deal with the Colts.

Johnson will rejoin one of his closest friends, running back Frank Gore, another free agent signing to chase a Super Bowl title.

"That's what we came here for," Johnson said.

Terms were not immediately available. Johnson, in 12 NFL seasons in Houston, went to seven Pro Bowls, was selected All-Pro twice, had five 100-catch seasons and set Houston's franchise records for receptions (1,012), yards receiving (13,597) and touchdown catches (64).

"I wanted to be in a place that had a stable quarterback, and I believe Andrew [Luck] is arguably the best quarterback in the game," Johnson said.

A smokescreen?

Eagles coach Chip Kelly says he's not "mortgaging the future" to move up and draft Marcus Mariota, and he didn't acquire Sam Bradford to use as trade bait.

Kelly broke his offseason silence Wednesday after a turbulent week that saw the Philadelphia Eagles trade two-time All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Nick Foles, while letting Pro Bowl wide receiver Jeremy Maclin leave in free agency.

On Wednesday, the Eagles announced they have agreed on a one-year contract with free-agent cornerback Walter Thurmond III and re-signed quarterback Mark Sanchez to a two-year deal. Former Chargers running back Ryan Mathews, according to reports, also has reached agreement on three-year, $11.5 million deal.

Suh signs with Miami

The Miami Dolphins signed star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to a six-year deal worth $114 million with $60 million guaranteed. It's the biggest contract given to a defensive player in NFL history.

"I'm excited about the pressure," said Suh, referring to his big contract, "I don't necessarily look at it as pressure. I look at it as something I'm built for."

Cutler gets nod

Twenty-one days after the Chicago Bears were noncommittal about the future of Jay Cutler, the team made a decision. "We're moving forward with Jay Cutler as our starting quarterback," said Ryan Pace, Bears general manager.
