This season is both going well for the Indianapolis Colts while still managing to be full of headaches. The Colts limped to an AFC South division crown by default last week and are in a pretty significant rut as of late. They’ve also endured their fair share of injuries on offense with Ahamad Bradshaw, Vick Ballard and Reggie Wayne all on IR.
But the Colts are making a move to try and add some firepower back to Andrew Luck’s offense and have worked out former Patriots and Seahawks wide receiver Deion Branch, among others.

While he’s a name we remember, there’s no certainty that Branch would add any firepower to the offense at all as he hasn’t played in quite some time and seems to have little gas left to run on.
Still, this move shows how desperate the Colts are right now to find someone to spark this offense which is struggling on a consistent basis and looks like the weakest link in the AFC playoff picture despite the like of Baltimore, Miami and New York still fighting for playoff spots.
