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.

Oct 18 - 10:30 PM

Colts re-signed FS Mike Adams to a two-year contract.

Adams, 34, stabilized Indianapolis' previously shaky free safety position last season, earning elite coverage marks from Pro Football Focus and intercepting five passes. He added two forced fumbles. Father Time will eventually catch up with Adams, but there are no indications that will occur in 2015.
Mar 10 - 4:13 PM

The Colts are expected to re-sign free agent FS Mike Adams.

Beat writers Stephen Holder and Mike Chappell have both come out Tuesday saying they expect Adams back in Indianapolis. The Colts have become a perennial playoff team under Andrew Luck, and Adams is 34 years old. And Indy is needy at safety. Adams can finish out his career with a chance at a ring.
Mar 10 - 11:03 AM

The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder "senses motivation from both sides" as the Colts look to re-sign free agent FS Mike Adams.

Adams was a bright spot for the Colts' secondary in 2014, logging five interceptions and his first Pro Bowl nod. The No. 11 safety in Rotoworld's free agent rankings, it sounds like Adams isn't going anywhere.
Mar 2 - 1:55 PM

Impending free agent FS Mike Adams would like to re-sign with the Colts.

Signed to a one-year, $955,000 deal in June, Adams ended up starting all 16 games, qualifying for the Pro Bowl. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 7 safety after two highly-uneven years in Denver. The Colts have been noncommittal on Adams' status. He turns 34 in March.
Jan 26 - 2:56 PM

Mike Adams has the early edge for the Colts' free safety job.

Delano Howell entered OTAs as the favorite to start, but ESPN's Mike Wells now considers Adams the leading candidate. Adams, a ten-year veteran, was an every-down player for Denver from Week 12 on last season. If he wins the starting job, SS LaRon Landry could be asked to play more deep coverages. The back end of the Colts' secondary is a 2014 concern.

Colts signed S Mike Adams.

A ten-year veteran, Adams brings experience to the Colts' secondary. He's spent time with the 49ers, Browns, and most recently the Broncos. Adams generally struggled in Denver, starting 27 games over two seasons but grading out poorly in pass coverage. Adams, 33, will compete with Delano Howell and Sergio Brown for the starting safety spot opposite entrenched starter LaRon Landry. There's no noticeable upgrade to the Colts' weak safety corps here.
