Colts, Darius Butler Agree On Contract Extension

Intro: The Colts are keeping another one of their free agents by agreeing to terms with Darius Butler on a contract extension.





INDIANAPOLIS – The Colts have one position group of their secondary intact for 2015.

Nickelback Darius Butler and the Colts agreed to terms on a contract extension on Sunday night.

Butler was scheduled to hit the open market as a free agent if the deal did not come before Tuesday afternoon.

With Butler returning, the Colts have their corner trio back for a third season together in Vontae Davis and Greg Toler.

A 2009 second-round pick, Butler has found a home in Indianapolis after stops in New England and Carolina.

He joined the Colts during the 2012 bye week and has been a playmaker, while primarily lining up opposite the slot.

Butler has 30 pass deflections, eight interceptions, three forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries in his 41 games with the Colts.

While a cornerback addition in the draft wouldn't be a surprise for Indy, the attention in the secondary is squarely on the safety position.

Both Mike Adams and Sergio Brown remain unrestricted agents with free agency rapidly approaching (Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. EST).
