On Monday, the Indianapolis Colts activated cornerback T.J. Carrie off the team’s Reserve/COVID-19 list, where he was placed last week along with cornerback Xavier Rhodes and defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad—both of whom still remain inactives.
Carrie was re-signed to a 1-year, $2.085M deal earlier this offseason following a surprisingly impactful debut campaign with the Colts this past year.
Carrie recorded 32 tackles (25 solo), a tackle for loss, 2 interceptions (one for a touchdown), 8 passes defensed, a fumble, and a fumble recovery during 15 games (2 starts) in 2020.
Per PFF, he was targeted 36 times in coverage for 20 receptions (55.6% completion rate), 285 receiving yards (14.3 ypr. avg.), a touchdown, 2 interceptions, and 6 pass breakups—allowing an NFL passer rating of just 67.5.
The 31 year old veteran DB figures to push for playing time along the outside again, while providing valuable depth at slot cornerback and on special teams.
