Colts re-sign cornerback Kenny Moore to reported 4-year deal

Kenny Moore could be on the verge of a very big payday.

According to NFL Media, which cited sources, the Colts and the third-year cornerback have agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension that will keep him in Indianapolis through the 2023 season.

The deal is expected to make Moore the highest-paid slot corner in the league in terms of new money after Justin Coleman inked a four-year contract worth $36 million with the Lions in March, the report noted.

Moore, who had one year remaining on his current deal, was set to become a restricted free agent after 2019.

Moore, 23, signed with the Patriots as an undrafted rookie out of Valdosta State in 2017 but failed to make the 53-man roster. The Colts then claimed him off waivers in September and he earned his first career start in Week 13.

He had 77 total tackles, 11 passes defended, three interceptions, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 15 starts last season.

The Colts have also signed punter Rigoberto Sanchez and long snapper Luke Rhodes to extensions this offseason.
