INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WLFI) – On Wednesday, the Indianapolis Colts signed two players, one being a free agent and former Harrison High School athlete FN Lutz.
Lutz said signing with the Colts is a surreal feeling.
“My whole family is big Colts fans, but definitely an opportunity that I’m very thankful for,” Lutz said. “You know, hometown team. Now being on the inside, it’s definitely pretty neat. Being able to be around the guys, see the guys, and learn, and just go to work with them. It’s pretty special.”
Lutz, 6-3, 290 pounds, started 42-of-44 career games at Indiana State University. He started all 12 games at center for the Sycamores in 2013 and all 11 games in 2011. Lutz also started all 11 games in 2010 and anchored an offense that averaged 411.8 total yards per game, which ranked fourth in the Missouri Valley Football Conference and 17th in the nation. The team broke a school record by scoring 351 points for the season, averaging 31.9 per game, which ranked second in the MVFC and 15th nationally.
The Colts also announced the signing of free agent cornerback Johnny Adams.
Adams, 5-11, 177 pounds, was previously signed by the Colts on Aug. 13, 2013 and waived on Aug. 25. He played in four games with the Buffalo Bills in 2013, primarily on special teams. Adams was signed by the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State on May 10, 2013. He started 39-of-54 collegiate games and finished his career ranked fourth in school history in interception return yards (230), fifth in passes defensed (35) and 10th in interceptions (11). Adams was also a three-time All-Big Ten selection.
