The NFL today announced that Colts safety Mike Adams has been named to the 2016 Pro Bowl. Adams will replace Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor who will miss the game due to injury. The game will be played on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
In 13 starts in 2015, Adams ranked fourth on the team with 76 tackles (54 solo) and contributed with five interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), six passes defensed, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and 1.0 sack. His five interceptions tied a career-high (2014) and ranked tied for sixth in the NFL. Adams’ three forced fumbles also set a new career-best. In his last two Pro Bowl seasons (2014-15), he has compiled 10 interceptions, which ranks tied for third in the league. In a Week 5 victory against Houston, Adams registered five tackles, two interceptions and two passes defensed. His second interception of the game in the fourth quarter gave the Colts possession of the ball that they would not relinquish, helping to seal the victory. It was his fourth career multiple interception game and Adams earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for his performance. The following week against New England, Adams totaled three tackles, one interception returned for a touchdown and one pass defensed. It marked his second career interception return for a touchdown.
Adams and teammate Vontae Davis will both be making their second consecutive appearances in the Pro Bowl. The Colts have had at least two players represented in the game dating back to 1999.
