Colts Re-Sign Mike Adams to Two Year Deal


According to multiple sources, the Indianapolis Colts have finally worked out a deal to bring safety Mike Adams back to the team.

Adams had a career year with the Colts in 2014. He made his first Pro Bowl and was tied for the most takeaways in the NFL.

Re-signing Adams was a huge priority for this team as they didn’t have any starting caliber safeties on the roster heading into 2015. Adams will take one of the starting jobs, but the Colts will need to find another safety either through the draft of free agency.

The Colts other option at safety, Sergio Brown, had a deal in principle with the Jaguars a few hours ago. While Brown was an average safety, and more of a backup, he was excellent on special teams.

The Colts also released LaRon Landry following the end of the season, making Adams an even bigger priority. Landry was then promptly suspended by the NFL for 10 games for another PED violation.

Adams provides a veteran presence in the secondary and is a great influence on the locker room.

The short term deal for Adams, who will be 34 later this month, shows that the Colts understand that finding the safety for the future is still a priority. They’ve been linked to a number of free agents, but haven’t shown much interest in the big names available.

This might suggest that Ryan Grigson will be looking towards the draft to address the other need at the position (hello Landon Collins).
