The Colts have already announced their extension with CB Kenny Moore.
“Kenny personifies the characteristics that we look for in a Colt with his leadership, tenacity and work ethic,” Colts general manager Chris Ballard said. “We are happy for Kenny and his family. He has done the right things and deserves this. We also appreciate the hard work by Buddy Baker and his team in getting this deal done.”
- According to Rapoport, Moore receives $30 million in new money from 2021-2023 and can earn a max value of more than $36 million.
- Mike Wells adds that the extension is worth up to $40 million and includes $18 million guaranteed.
The Colts are sitting on a ton of cap space and have made it clear that they plan to take care of their own players.
Moore was clearly someone to watch as an extension candidate, given that he had just a year remaining on his rookie deal.
Moore, 23, wound up signing on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Valdosta State back in 2017. He signed a three-year, $1.66 million contract but was waived and later claimed off of waivers by the Colts.
Moore was set to make a base salary of $645,000 for the 2019 season. He would have been a restricted free agent in 2020.
In 2018, Moore appeared in 15 games for the Colts and recorded 76 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three interceptions, a forced fumble and 11 pass defenses.
