Did the Colts overpay for Gary Brackett, or is Gary worth the coin?

Simple question: Is Gary Brackett, 29-years-old, worth $12 million in guaranteed coin as part of a 5 year, $33 million dollar deal? This deal puts him in Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher territory. Now, for some, Gary is nothing more than a decent coverage backer. I disagree. We all remember what the Colts defense was before Gary secured the starting MIKE spot back in 2005.

Since then, the Colts defense has taken this franchise to another level. Gary, for me, is a big reason why.

So, your opinions? Did Gary deserve this money? Please vote and discuss.
