2018 Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: Cornerback Adam Jones

CLEVELAND, OH - OCTOBER 01: Adam Jones /

The Colts could be in the market for a free agent cornerback, and Adam Jones is one of the most accomplished corners available.

Colts general manager Chris Ballard’s comments during his NFL Combine press conference made it sound like he wasn’t totally committed to re-signing Rashaan Melvin this offseason. If that comes to pass, Indianapolis will likely need to add a cornerback or two in free agency.

Adam Jones has had a checkered history off-the-field, but there is no doubt that he’s been a high-level cornerback when he’s been on the field. He’s been a Pro Bowler as recently as 2015, but his play has been in decline over the past two seasons.

One of the reasons for Jones’ struggles last year was a sports hernia injury that needed season-ending surgery to repair. He should be back for OTA’s, but the 34 year-old cornerback may be on his last legs.

Jones sounds like a similar player to Vontae Davis. They’ve both played at a Pro Bowl level recently, but groin injuries have slowed them down late in their career.

Considering Chris Ballard cut Vontae Davis last season, I don’t think he’ll give much thought to signing Adam Jones.
