The Indianapolis Colts today agreed to terms with long snapper Matt Overton on a contract extension.
Overton has played in all 48 regular season games and six postseason contests for the Colts since being signed as a free agent on April 2, 2012. He has contributed with 22 career special teams tackles in the regular season and two in the playoffs. Last season, Overton totaled eight special teams stops, while snapping for punter Pat McAfee and kicker Adam Vinatieri, who both earned Pro Bowl and Associated Press First Team NFL All-Pro honors. In 2013, Overton earned his first Pro Bowl nod after snapping for McAfee, who averaged 46.0 yards per punt, and Vinatieri, who converted 35-of-40 field goals and all 34 extra point attempts. In 2012, Overton finished third on the team with nine special teams tackles.
