Panthers agreed to terms with FS Mike Adams, formerly of the Colts, on a two-year contract.
The Panthers are getting a proven ballhawk in Adams, who has intercepted 12 passes over his last three seasons. The two-time Pro Bowler will bring a strong veteran presence to a Panthers secondary that went through growing pains in 2016. Adams turns 36 later this month. This could be his last contract.

Free agent FS Mike Adams confirmed he is moving on from the Colts.

In an Instagram post, Adams said, "Today was my last day as a Colt." It is not a surprising development, but it at least confirms the 36-year-old (later this month) will hit the open market. Adams wants to continue playing, and he was still an effective safety last season. He should receive interest from contenders.
Mar 6 - 8:20 PM

Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts have had "zero discussions" with impending free agent FS Mike Adams.

The writing appears to be on the wall. Adams will turn 36 in March, but he remained effective in 2016 and has said he wants to continue playing. He should receive interest once he hits the open market.
Mar 2 - 9:44 AM

The Indianapolis Star considers free agent FS Mike Adams "unlikely" to be re-signed by the Colts.

Adams remains an effective NFL safety, but he turns 36 next month and rookie GM Chris Ballard figures to try to get younger on defense. Ballard's first move on the job was releasing over-the-hill ILB D'Qwell Jackson. Adams should draw free agent interest from contenders. He has 12 INTs over the past three years.

Colts FS Mike Adams (groin) will return in Week 11.

Adams missed Week 9 and Aaron Rodgers went completely off against the Colts. Adams' return is good news for Indy's secondary, although they still can't catch many breaks and will be without LCB Patrick Robinson (groin) versus Tennessee.

Colts FS Mike Adams (groin) has been ruled out for Week 9.

While Vontae Davis' (concussion) questionable listing has generated more headlines, Adams' loss is arguably even more significant as the Colts' communicator on the back end. Aaron Rodgers should feast on Indy's secondary.

Colts FS Mike Adams (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 12.

Adams is Indy's field general in the back end, so his absence is a significant blow against red-hot Jameis Winston. Clayton Geathers will start again.

Colts S Mike Adams (ankle) said he will "be ready" after the bye week.

Adams twisted his ankle intercepting Peyton Manning in the second quarter of the Colts' Week 9 win. He had an MRI after the game, so this confidence suggests it came back clean. Colt Anderson replaced Adams against Denver.

Colts FS Mike Adams (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Saints.

Adams won Defensive Player of the Week honors a couple weeks ago, but has otherwise had an up and down season on the back end. Special teamer Colt Anderson will start in his place. It's a boost to Drew Brees' matchup.
