Colts 2014 Positional Review: Safety

1 of 5

The Indianapolis Colts finished the season 11-5 and made it all the way to the AFC Championship game. We take a look at each position and break down the units performance over the past season. Pro Football Focus (PFF) provides the grades, Football Outsiders DVOA (value per play) and DYAR (total value).

The Colts headed into last season with big question marks at the safety position. They let fan favorite and defensive captain Antoine Bethea walk following 2013 and needed to find his replacement.

The Colts expected Delano Howell or Sergio Brown to take the spot next to LaRon Landry. Mike Adams was expected to be a quality backup. Instead, Adams turned in one of his best seasons in the NFL and made the Pro Bowl.

We’ve also learned that Landry was cut today by the Colts, leaving another hole in the Colts secondary.

Heading into 2015, safety is still a concern. Adams is a free agent and Landry simply wasn’t a starting caliber player.
