He owns totals of 163 tackles, four tackles for loss, five sacks, three passes defensed, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and 13 special teams stops in 46 career games (19 starts).

The 5-foot-11, 231-pound Spence also played in three postseason games (one start) with the Steelers and tallied two tackles and one forced fumble. He was originally selected by the Steelers in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Miami (Fla.).

"Sean has the speed and athleticism to be a sideline to sideline player," Colts general manager Chris Ballard said in a statement. "He is coming off of a productive season and we are excited to see him continue with the Colts."

In 2016 with the Titans, Spence played in 15 games (six starts) and set career highs with 77 tackles, four tackles for loss, three sacks, three passes defensed and one forced fumble. He finished third on the team in tackles and ranked fifth with seven special teams stops.

Williams, 29, originally signed with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2013 out of Oregon.

He added six special teams tackles and returned one kickoff for 12 yards. He played in two postseason games (one start) and made one special teams stop.
