Less than 24 hours after placing safety Corey Lynch on IR, the Indianapolis Colts have agreed to terms with veteran safety Mike Adams. Adams has been in the league 10 years, with his first team being the 49ers. The bulk of his career was in Cleveland where he played with current Colts linebacker D'Qwell Jackson. Like Adams, Jackson signed with Indianapolis this offseason.

Adams has 13 career INTs and 438 career tackles. He started 10 games for the Denver Broncos last season, including all three playoff games.

Adams had a -1.0 rating from PFF last year.

A solid contributor for the Broncos last year, Adams is a fairly average safety at this point in his career, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing for teams with a need at the position.

Adams recently spoke with SIRIUS NFL Radio's Alex Marvez about hopefully signing with another team following the Super Bowl, which saw Adams' Broncos get destroyed by the Seahawks in embarrassing fashion. Via PFT:

“I can’t fathom me going out like this. I can’t imagine losing a big game and not even having another opportunity to step on the field. That’s why the anxiety is picking up with me.”

Well, now Adams has a team.

For a Colts team that is very weak at the safety position, this signing makes sense.

Adams had one pick and 48 tackles for the Broncos last season.
