The Indianapolis Colts today agreed to terms with safety Mike Adams on a contract extension.
Adams was originally signed by the Colts as a free agent on June 16, 2014. Last season, he earned his first career Pro Bowl nod after finishing tied for the NFL lead in takeaways (seven) and tied for third in interceptions (five). Adams started all 16 games in 2014 and was the only NFL player to post two multiple-interception games. He also set or tied career highs with 93 tackles (71 solo), 11 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. In three postseason starts, he ranked third on the team with 20 tackles (11 solo) and added one pass defensed.
For his 11-year NFL career with Indianapolis (2014), Denver (2012-13), Cleveland (2007-2011) and San Francisco (2004-06), Adams has registered 581 tackles (439 solo), 66 passes defensed, 18 interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, 11 fumble recoveries, six forced fumbles, 5.0 sacks and 70 special teams tackles in 162 games (89 starts). He was originally signed by the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware on April 28, 2004.
