The Indianapolis Colts announced Tuesday that they’ve signed LS Luke Rhodes to a four-year extension through 2023.
- Zak Keefer reports that Rhodes’ new deal makes him the highest-paid long snapper in football and is worth $5.57 million over four years and includes $1.25 million guaranteed.
Rhodes, 26, wound up signing on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of William & Mary. He was in the first of his three-year, $1.62 million contract when he was cut loose coming out of the preseason.
The Colts later signed him to their practice squad before eventually promoting him to their active roster. Rhodes returned to the Colts this past March on an exclusive rights deal.
In 2018, Rhodes appeared in all 16 games for the Colts and recorded four tackles.
During his four-year college career, Rhodes recorded 341 tackles, 20 tackles for a loss, six forced fumbles, two recoveries, five sacks, an interception and 19 pass defenses.
