The Indianapolis Colts are moving on from veteran safety Mike Adams, according to Adams himself.



Adams had a very productive career in Indianapolis, with 12 interceptions to go along with 7 forced fumbles in three seasons with the club.  He signed in late June three years ago and managed to play in two Pro Bowls.


Going Forward

This move seems to be connected to the mindset that the defense needs to get faster and younger, a reason why the Colts moved on from D’Qwell Jackson. Adams was due to hit free agency on Thursday, so this move is simply more about not re-signing him than releasing him.



Adams is going to be turning 36 next season, and T.J. Green should be expected to step in and replace Adams next to Clayton Geathers in the starting lineup.

Adams did mention in his post that he is not retiring.
