Melvin Bullitt will remain a central figure with the Indianapolis Colts defense.
The veteran safety has agreed to re-sign with the team, according to a source close to Bullitt. Details of the multi-year contract, which cannot be signed until Friday, were not immediately available.
Bullitt, who originally joined the Colts in 2007 as an undrafted rookie, has started 24 regular-season games and appeared in 48. He missed the final 12 games of 2010 with a shoulder injury.
Bullitt is expected to start alongside Antoine Bethea in the secondary.
In four seasons, Bullitt has 178 tackles and six interceptions.
