The Indianapolis Colts won’t be shut out from the Pro Bowl as alternates were announced today.
With players going to the Super Bowl and others needing to recover from injuries, the Colts found out today that two members of the defense will be headed to the Pro Bowl. Safety Mike Adams and cornerback Vontae Davis will both be headed to Hawaii this weekend.
Davis will be taking the place of Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. who will be in the playing in the Super Bowl. Adams is taking Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor‘s spot as he is bowing out due to injury.
Prior to signing with the Colts, Adams had never made a Pro Bowl. He is now headed to his second straight after two exceptional seasons in Indianapolis.
The Colts were shut out during the voting phase, even Pat McAfee (who had an outstanding season) couldn’t make the cut.
Adams finished the season with five interceptions, three forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, and a sack. Adams also had a touchdown off an interception return this year. Not a bad followup to his 2014 campaign where he was tied for takeaways with seven (five interceptions, two fumble recoveries).
Davis couldn’t quite repeat his elite 2014 season, but was still a very good corner this year. He finished up 2015 with four interceptions and 16 defended passes.
