Colts “Keeping Close Eye On” Free Agent S Tony Jefferson


Zak Keefer of The Athletic, citing league sources, reports that the Colts are “keeping a close eye on” free agent S Tony Jefferson. Tony Jefferson

Keefer mentions that while no deal is finalized right now, Jefferson is someone to watch for the Colts in the coming weeks as a potential addition. 

Jefferson visited with the Colts last month, so he’s clearly been on their radar. 

Last year, Jefferson suffered a torn ACL in October. 

Jefferson, 28, originally signed on with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma back in 2013. He played out his rookie contract in Arizona before signing a four-year, $34 million contract that included $19 million guaranteed with the Ravens in 2017.

Jefferson was set to make a base salary of $7 million for the 2020 season when the Ravens released him during the offseason. 

In 2019, Jefferson appeared in five games for the Ravens and recorded 21 tackles, no interceptions and three pass defenses.

We have him included in our Top 100 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
