Colts Sign Former Browns Safety Mike Adams

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, free agent S Mike Adams listed the Browns, 49ers, Jets, and Patriots as the teams who had expressed an interest in his services this season. The window for being signed by the Browns appeared to close when they did not sign him for their mandatory minicamp, and now it officially seems closed as the veteran safety has signed a deal with the Indianapolis Colts:

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.

The Colts' interest perked up when their own veteran safety, Corey Lynch, landed on injured reserve. As Stampede Blue mentions, Adams will see a familiar face in Indianapolis as D'Qwell Jackson will be playing inside linebacker. Other former Browns on the Colts include RB Trent Richardson and assistant Rob Chudzinski. The Browns take on the Colts in December at FirstEnergy Stadium.
