Lost in all the free agency excitement, the Colts and safety Sergio Brown agreed to terms on a new deal. Brown’s numbers might not impress right away, but he has been a monster on special teams.
Watch film of the Indy special teams, and you’ll see number 38 on the screen when good things are happening – tackles inside the 20, punts downed inside the 10…or the 5-yard line, and so on.
Brown has been solid, and he’s a good depth player to have in the defensive backfield. More from the Colts press release:
Brown played in 14 games in 2013 and totaled nine special teams tackles and one defensive stop. He also recovered a fumble on special teams in Week 7 against Denver and blocked a field goal in Week 12 at Arizona. Brown played an instrumental role in helping punter Pat McAfee pin 27 punts inside the 20-yard line, a franchise single-season record.
For his career, Brown has appeared in 56 games (three starts) and has notched 42 tackles (38 solo), 31 special teams stops, two passes defensed, one interception and one fumble recovery. In seven postseason games, he has recorded one special teams tackle. Brown was claimed by the Colts off waivers on September 1, 2012 after spending two seasons (2010-11) with the New England Patriots. He was originally signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame on April 29, 2010.
Welcome back to Indy, Sergio Brown.
