Linebacker Gary Brackett wanted to finish his NFL career where it all started -- Indianapolis.

He's getting his wish.

The defensive captain signed a five-year deal hours after he officially became an unrestricted agent. Brackett's new deal is likely to keep the 29-year-old in a Colts uniform the rest of his career.

"Obviously, this is a great place to play and when you get a chance to stay a Colt for life, you usually jump at it," Brackett said during a news conference at the team's complex. "That's why I wanted to do everything within my power to make this my home."

Brackett will reportedly get $33 million, including a $12 million signing bonus, which would easily make him the Colts' highest-paid linebacker in a decade.


Good resign for the Colts they really needed there defensive leader back.
