Colts newcomers Andre Johnson, Frank Gore fitting in fine
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Colts skill position newcomers Andre Johnson and Frank Gore have already shown a "relatively smooth" transition to their new team, Chuck Pagano told ESPN.

The wide receiver and running back performed so well in OTA work Wednesday that Pagano claimed that it appeared they had been with the organization for years.

"Pretty seamless," Pagano said about their work. "They don't miss a beat as far as the playbook goes, knowing what to do. Every time I see them in the huddle, break a huddle, to me it looks like they're going the right direction. They're lining up right. They're very talented, talented guys. They fit right into the locker room. They're professionals. ... They're not talkers. They're workers, they're doers."

Both veterans, however, have shown signs that their best days are behind them. The 33-year-old Johnson failed to reach 1,000 yards receiving last season for Houston for the first time in his last seven full seasons. The 32-year-old Gore managed another 1,000-yard performance in 2014, but his total was its lowest of any in a full season since 2008.

49ers Carlos Hyde sorry to see Frank Gore leave
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Frank Gore left the 49ers for the Colts, giving Carlos Hyde a chance to replace him as starting running back. Despite the opportunity, Hyde isn't happy about the change. 

"I wanted him to come back," Hyde said, per 49ers.com.  "When I found out he wasn't coming back, I was like, 'Are you really leaving?' I was shocked."

"I wasn't expecting to come in and take Frank Gore's spot," Hyde added. "It was more of a, 'Come in and learn from Frank Gore.' That's exactly what I did."

The biggest thing he learned from his year with Gore was not to be in a hurry to make plays. "Be patient on runs, let the play develop and not be so quick," he said. "I felt like last year I was being too quick on plays and not letting them develop. I was missing reads."

Frank Gore chose Colts because they offered 'best fit'
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Frank Gore was really close to joining the Eagles. 

But after weighing his options over the weekend, he felt like he had a better chance for success in Indianapolis. A lot of that had to do with the style the Colts run, which is more similar to what he experienced in San Francisco than what he'd encounter in Philadelphia.

"I felt like I wanted to see what the best fit was for me," Gore said, via the Indianapolis Star. "Greg Roman and Pep [Hamilton] coached on the same team in college. Similar styles. ... That's why I came here."

Gore was referring to Roman, his coordinator with the 49ers, and Hamilton, the Colts' offensive coordinator, coaching together at Stanford under Jim Harbaugh.

Gore mentioned that the Eagles recruited him hard to join them but that he had to change his mind when it came time to sign.

"The Eagles came and they really pressed and they really wanted me," Gore said. "When you're a free agent, you want to be wanted. [But] I always wanted to come play for the Colts."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
