Colts Sign WR Marcus Johnson, Activate DT Sheldon Day, Cut Two


The Indianapolis Colts announced Saturday that they’ve signed WR Marcus Johnson to their active roster and activated DT Sheldon Day from injured reserve.

Other roster moves from the Colts:

  • Colts waived DT Eli Ankou.
  • Colts released S Ibraheim Campbell.
  • Colts promoted G Jake Eldrenkamp and WR DeMichael Harris to their active roster.

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 has been on and off of the Colts’ roster this season. 

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