Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) – The Indianapolis Colts have kept one of
their defensive leaders in the fold, agreeing to terms with safety Mike Adams
on a contract extension moments before he was set to hit free agency.
The Indianapolis Star reported the deal to be for two years.
Indianapolis also re-signed special teams ace Colt Anderson prior to Tuesday’s
start of the new league year.
Adams earned his first career Pro Bowl nod while playing on a one-year
contract with the Colts last season. The 33-year-old set a career best with
five interceptions while amassing 93 tackles, 11 passes defensed and two
forced fumbles and starting each of the team’s 19 games (including playoffs).
The 11-year-veteran had spent the previous two seasons with Denver and was a
member of the Broncos’ 2013 AFC champion team. Adams has been durable as well,
having missed just one game over the past six seasons.
For his career, Adams has registered 581 tackles, 18 interceptions, six forced
fumbles and five sacks with San Francisco, Cleveland, Denver and the Colts.
Anderson led the Colts with 15 special teams tackles in 2014 and added three
more during the postseason. The five-year pro signed a one-year contract with
Indianapolis last April after previously playing for Philadelphia.
