2021 NFL Free Agency: After visiting Buffalo Bills, T.J. Carrie re-signs with Indianapolis Colts

The Buffalo Bills hosted former Indianapolis Colts cornerback T.J. Carrie earlier this week. On Saturday, Carrie re-signed with the Colts.

The deal is worth more than $2 million, and we don’t know the contract structure at this point. All of Buffalo’s signings in the last few weeks have been for half that, so it’s probable that the Bills didn’t want to financially compete with the Colts and their cap space

Carrie, 30, entered the league as a seventh-round draft choice of the Oakland (now Las Vegas) Raiders in 2014. He spent two years with the Cleveland Browns before spending his 2020 season with the Indianapolis Colts. For his career, the 6’ corner has 363 tackles, eight interceptions, 51 pass breakups, two sacks, eight fumble recoveries and six forced fumbles.

Last year, Carrie played just 38 percent of the Colts’ total defensive snaps, the lowest percentage of his career. He was a major contributor on special teams, though, playing on 251 snaps, good for 57 percent of Indianapolis’s total. For the 2020 season, Carrie made 32 tackles, adding two interceptions, eight pass breakups, and one fumble recovery to his ledger. He returned one of his interceptions for a touchdown.

The Bills have starter Levi Wallace and second-year player Dane Jackson competing opposite Tre’Davious White. They are likely to add a player with starting experience or draft another competitor at the spot in the next few weeks.
