Colts, Mike Adams share interest in new deal

Mike Adams was a huge piece for the Indianapolis Colts’ defense this past season, and the two sides want to get something done to continue together next year according to a report from Stephen Holder.

Colts Combine Update: Mike Adams Likely to Return, Pass Rusher an Offseason Focus

Well, if you expected the Colts combine interviews to be full of fluff and limited on interesting information, you are the big winner! The most asked-about subject was Deflategate, since all the east coast media was in town, which made for a depressing and rather uneventful day. Here were the notable talking points, as told by the reporters that were there: Pagano echoes what Grigson...

Colts Can't Tip-Toe Around Safety Position This Offseason

After completely ignoring the safety position in the 2014 draft, the Indianapolis Colts signed safety Mike Adams to a one-year deal last June to give the secondary some much needed veteran depth for the season. Adams, instead, became the starter opposite LaRon Landry and outplayed everyone at the position throughout the season. Now, Landry has been released and all others on the...

Could Anthony Harris be a Horseshoe After Round 2?

One area that has been in need of a long term solution is the safety position. The Indianapolis Colts brought in Mike Adams to fill the void left by long time stalwart Antoine Bethea last season in free agency and were pleasantly rewarded with his production. Delano Howell showed some promise in 2013 when filling in but was not healthy and landed on Injured Reserve. After a rough...

A Browns-centric look at the NFL Conference Championships

Ihope you’re sitting down: The Cleveland Browns did not make the NFL playoffs this year. A shocker, I know. It looked like they might sneak in for a minute, but a December swoon saw the Browns finish 7-9, which, to be fair, was their best record in seven years. Again, Browns fans could only watch the playoffs from a distance, like hungry children peering through the window at...

Indianapolis Colts website is down to 'direct all focus' to AFC championship game

People directing their browsers to the Indianapolis Colts website on Friday will see a minute-long pump-up video with wideout T.Y.

Colts' defense hoping to change image as playoffs heat up

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Mike Adams spent his first 10 NFL seasons developing his own perception of the Colts. He bought into the theory that Indianapolis needed a high-scoring offense to win games.

Five Colts named to Pro Bowl, but should it have been six?

First off, congratulations to Andrew Luck, TY Hilton, Vontae Davis, Pat McAfee, and Adam Vinatieri on being selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl. All well deserved, especially after many thought Vontae Davis would get the snub in likes of more popular names at cornerback. Even D’Qwell Jackson and Mike Adams were also named as alternates, but there is one Colt who might have been snubbed...
