Antoine Bethea A Priory For Colts

Well by next season, safety Antoine Bethea will be 30-years-old. However, Bethea still plays at a relatively high level. That is why the Colts are expected to get him back under contract quickly.

Beathea, an unrestricted free agent in March, is considered a priority to get under contract according to Mike Wells of ESPN. The eighth year safety is a two-time Pro Bowler (07,09) and registered 78 solo tackles in 2013 and 108 combined. Bethea has registered over 800 career tackles and has only missed five games in his entire career.

Bethea’s durability and no real depth at secondary are two big reasons why the Colts must find a way to keep him. Pro Football Focus gives the safety a positive grade against the run but Bethea finished a bit low in the pass defense category. Bethea finished seventh in the league for recording 23 tackles within eight yards of the line of scrimmage — ranked out of 63 of the top safeties.

So a priority indeed is Bethea to the Colts. Time is also ticking on what the team will do with the other seventeen unrestricted free agents on the roster.
