Colts Elevate WR Marcus Johnson & G Jake Eldrenkamp


The Indianapolis Colts announced Saturday that they’ve promoted G Jake Eldrenkamp and WR Marcus Johnson to their active roster for Sunday’s game against the Browns. 

Both players will revert back to the Colts’ practice squad on Monday. 

Johnson, 25, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Texas back in 2016. He was on and off of the Eagles’ practice squad before being traded to the Seahawks.

From there, the Seahawks traded Johnson to the Colts at the start of the 2018 season. He returned to the Colts on an exclusive rights contract last year and was on and off of their roster. 

Indianapolis declined to tender Johnson as a restricted free agent but brought him back on a lower figure before waiving him again coming out of camp. He was later added to their practice squad. 

In 2019, Johnson appeared in eight games for the Colts and caught 17 passes for 277 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
