After losing several defenders in the early hours of NFL free agency, the Indianapolis Colts have made an addition to their defense.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Jeremy Fowler reported on March 14 that the Colts have signed defensive end Samson Ebukam to a three-year contract worth as much as $27 million. The deal will include $11 million in the first season.
Ebukam recorded 5 sacks in 15 starts during the 2022 season. He also had 36 combined tackles, including 7 tackles for loss, 13 quarterback hits, 1 pass defense, 1 forced fumble and 1 fumble recovery while playing for the San Francisco 49ers in 2022.
During 2021, Ebukam started 11 games and then became a regular starter this past season. The 49ers were ranked first in points allowed and second in yards allowed during 2022.
