Butler’s move to safety should help Colts get over Adams’ loss


  • Indianapolis’ Darius Butler moved from cornerback to safety in Week 13 and totaled 148 snaps there during the season.
  • Butler allowed the second-lowest QB rating of his career (61.4), after allowing a career high in 2015 (118.2).
  • Butler’s stats at safety were comparable to Mike Adams’ in cover snaps/target (18.5), yards/cover snap (0.45), and cover snaps/reception (49.3, 10th-best of any safety).
  • Incumbent safety T.J. Green’s rookie year didn’t go as planned as he allowed the most yards/cover snap (1.3), and had the lowest cover snaps/reception (9.5) in the league.
