INDIANAPOLIS – The roll call for the Colts in this year's Pro Bowl has grown to seven players.

Safety Mike Adams and inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson will join five of their teammates in Arizona this week for the 2015 Pro Bowl.

A spot for Adams opened up when the Seahawks, and their two Pro Bowl safeties (Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor), made the Super Bowl.

Jackson is replacing Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner.

For Adams, the 11-year safety was on the streets for a portion of the 2014 offseason before the Colts signed him just prior to minicamp in June.

With all the uncertainty at safety last offseason, Adams was more than steady.

He played 96.7 percent of the team's defensive snaps and was tied for the league's lead with seven takeaways.

D'Qwell Jackson joined the Colts just prior to the 2014 free agency period and made his first playoff appearance since being drafted in 2006.

Jackson played 94.2 percent of the Colts' defensive snaps and ended the season sixth in the NFL with 140 tackles (led the AFC).

The Colts will have seven Pro Bowlers for Sunday's game at 8:00 p.m. EST on ESPN (Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton, Vontae Davis, Pat McAfee and Adam Vinatieri). That's the most the team has had in the Pro Bowl since 2010.

Just like last year, the Pro Bowl is unconferenced with a draft airing on Wednesday night on NFL Network. The 2015 Pro Bowl captains are Hall of Famers Cris Carter and Michael Irvin.
