Indianapolis Colts Sign Former 49ers Pass-Rusher

Former San Francisco 49ers defensive end Samson Ebukam is signing a three-year, $27 million deal with the Indianapolis Colts.

Despite not being a household name, Ebukam has been a consistent player over his six years in the league, steadily improving each year. In total, he has recorded 23.5 sacks, 28 tackles for loss, 52 QB hits, eight forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries (one for a TD) in 96 games, 61 of which he started. 

The 27-year-old outside linebacker played a crucial role in one of the league's best defensive units in 2022. 

Ebukam will likely play a big role on the Colts' defensive line this upcoming season as a rotational pass-rusher next to Kwity Paye and Dayo Odeyingbo.

This past season, the 27-year-old recorded 36 total tackles, five sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one pass defended across 15 games played.
