Default Kenny Moore Signs 4-year Deal

The Colts used a little of that cap space today - making Moore the highest paid slot corner "based upon new money" according to Rapoport:

Yes, Moore seems to be well liked around here. GBB is a big fan, if I recall correctly. I'll be curious to see the terms/structure.

The Colts seem to be taking a page from MLB in focusing on early re-signs of their players to buy out a few of their free agent years. Moore's a pretty significant one. I wonder if they're thinking of doing something similar with Kelly, though I know his injury history would be a concern.

The comments left below Rapoport’s twitter post are kind of funny to read. The prevailing response to the Moore news seems to be “Who?”, including a guy who simply says, “never heard his name ever said”.

Then there’s the Texans fans who are basically conceding the AFC South to the Colts.

This is what we discussed on here after they didn't go crazy in UFA. There's a lot of cap space this year that they can put towards extensions. It will create more cap room in 2020-2023 and could help them retain more of their own who would have otherwise hit free agency.

Kenny Moore's story proves what a throwback attitude + tons of toughness can get you in this league. Remember, Chris Ballard had a rule — he didn't want any cornerbacks 5-9 or shorter. Had to be convinced to give Moore a shot. Two years later, Moore is a backbone of his defense.

Kenny Moore will sign his contract extension this afternoon, per source. Without a doubt, one of the most respected guys in that locker room. His teammates will be genuinely pumped for him. Undrafted guy out of Valdosta State who's earned everything he's gotten.

Heh, I remember him making some boneheaded special teams plays a couple years ago and me saying "CUT HIM."

Glad people way smarter than me make the decisions.

Ballard keeps doing what he says he will do. This has to be a positive for the locker room. I really like spending that cap money this way.

It wasn't just ST. He also had some really bad reps in coverage his rookie year. I don't know how much was scheme vs his progression, but he was WAYYYY better in 2018.
