Indianapolis Colts and safety Mike Adams agree to new contract

Tuesday March 10th, 2015

The Colts and Mike Adams have agreed to a deal that will bring the Pro-Bowl safety back to Indianapolis, the team announced on Tuesday.

Adams, who will turn 34 later this month, signed a one-year deal with the Colts prior to last season. The deal he and the team agreed to on Tuesday is reportedly for another two years.

This season, he started all 16 games, recording 106 tackles, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and five interceptions. Adams finished the season as the league leader in takeaways, with seven, and was named a Pro Bowl starter.

In 11 seasons, Adams has gained 648 tackles, 18 interceptions and 11 fumble recoveries in 162 career games. Prior to the Colts, he spent time with the Broncos, Browns and 49ers.

Adams said at the Pro Bowl he wanted to finish his career in Indianapolis, and believed he was still able to contribute to the team. "I got a lot left. I got more than people think," Adams said.

Also on Tuesday, the Colts added veteran pass-rusher Trent Cole; running back Frank Gore has joined the team, as well.

The Colts finished last season 11-5, losing to the New England Patriots in the AFC Conference championship game. The team was No. 19 in points allowed and finished No. 11 in yards allowed.
