Kenny Moore now highest paid slot CB

Recommended Posts

Looks like we are getting some of our guys signed and paid. Said it is a deal that makes him highest paid slot corner. Haven’t seen the details yet.

Very nice! I hope we didn't give him a blank check, and it's around $10 million per year. Nontheless, he deserves what he gets here. Excellent player, and happy to extend him!

Such a great story. Just shows how hard work pays off when everyone says your to small.

I might be jumping the gun as a homer wearing blue-tinted glasses, but our nickel package could be the best in the NFL this year.

I would assume that is about right. Probably 4y/40. Somewhere on that range.

 

Now we will see if AC gets extended here soon. I think Ebron will have to play the season out.

I think Chris Harris is highest paid slot from Denver at $12 mil per year. If Kenny is now making more than that, wow. What pay day for him!

This is sweet. IG is full of love for Kenny. Walker has one more year and he will probably get his payday.

I'll be honest, I was one of the biggest Kenny Moore doubters before this season. He's earned a paycheck and I'm extremely happy to be proven wrong.

Kelly will be next and probably the last unless they can do Castonzo at a reasonable price. I know Kelly has a 5th year option and many think no way on this but I think it happens. He's too young and too good not to do this considering the cap room the Colts have.

This article said Ravens made Tavon Young the highest paid slot CB. The 1 year $12 mil. does not count as it is not completely guaranteed, 1 year contracts will always have higher averages. If Tavon Young got paid 3 years $25 mil. with $13 mil. guaranteed, I am fine with Kenny Moore getting 3 years $27 mil., along the lines of Pierre Desir's 3 year $22.5 mil., that is truly the ballpark I am expecting to be revealed. He did deserve his payday.

My worst case concern is Kenny Moore being a 1 year wonder in Eberflus' system, and hopefully that will be put to rest this year. :)

So happy for Kenny and he's only going to get better!  When we met him recently in Louisville, I challenged him to have more interceptions that Ebron has TD catches this season.  Ebron was the other Colts player at the event.  Kenny smiled and chuckled, then said, "I'll see if I can make that happen!"

Great for Kenny but if Ballard plans on giving out max contracts

then there will be salary cap problems in the future. This is 

great for UDFA's watching and will get paid if they make the 

team and perform.

I would imagine the contract is heavily front loaded to use up the salary cap we have this year. It's all how you structure it

Booo! Colts are wasting all of their precious cap space by extending all of their really good players instead of overrated and old outside FA's. Booo, Irsay is so cheap! Am I doing this right?

 

:sarcasm:

 

Well done Colts and congrats Kenny.

Kenny is the definition of it not being about the size of the dog in the fight. Keep tying up WRs 23

Didn’t see this coming with 2 years of contract control still ahead and only a year of performance behind...but very informative about Ballard’s approach.

If we can maintain continuity till 2022-2023 with most of our guys on the verge of extensions, that will only help this young team, IMO.

Anytime a colt player is made the "highest paid at their position" I can't help but feel that Irsay had a great deal of influence in that contract negotiation.

It will depend on the actual contract and structure of it to say if it makes sense. I agree it’s a bit odd to see these contracts get restructured with more than 1 year remaining of a teams control. Not saying he doesn’t deserve the bump up in pay for what he showed last year so time will tell whether the right choices are being made. Is CB just trying to get a bit ahead of the next new players/owners nfl contract? Idk 

 

 I’m glad we kept Kenny though and hope his play continues as he did last year.

Our Corner depth could be second to none with Kenny,Desir,Quincy,Rock, Jalen, Hairston,Tell (Milton better keep adding to his cover skills because special teams alone wont make the final 53 without multuple injuries). Possible one of these guys gets traded for depth elsewhere (Maybe DT).  Nice problem to have.

These stats are crazy good. If I remember right he was the only guy to actually play well the first half of the KC game.

That wingspan of 78” and arm length is pretty incredible for such a short guy. Maybe that’s why he plays above his size.

Anyone else think we may end up trading a cb during TC...maybe Hairston?  We seem to have way too many NFL quality cbs back there, and we could probably get a conditional 6th or 7th for him from a team with cb injuries...

Possibly?  It feels strange seeing this quality depth at CB. It has been an Achilles heel so much in the past.

I think we have all the potential talent to make some trades for a few conditional picks at both CB and at WR.  Of course we have to get through trading camp and preseason to see what we have against live bullets and what we have not injured. We do have talent in more areas now than in a long time. Hopefully it all gels together for the start of opening day.

Good for him. Worked hard, played well... well deserved life changing money for him and his family. Here's to hoping he continues to play with the same intensity going forward :cheers:

So basically a three-year extension next season. His RFA contract next year would have been a 1st round tender...which would have been ~$5M. So this buys out that AND three years of FA. 

 

Not especially big on giving NFL players big deals TWO years before they hit FA...but Moore is certainly deserving. Signing now gives him some security and allows the team to potentially level out his cap hits somewhat.

The impending lockout and CBA is an unknown factor for sure.

 

I agree...paying a guy after two seasons in the NFL...and with two years of team control left...seems like a different approach. It does give you the ability to put more money upfront in his cheap years to lessen the cap hits of what would have been his FA years...but to do that...you would be trading off the current surplus value of his rookie deal (which is the best part about rookie contracts)...for the chance to have him under control at a good rate in a few years. That seems a bit risky...given the nature of the NFL with injuries, regression, etc.

 

It will be interesting to see how this is structured. If it's just a 4-year extension starting after this season...that makes sense. But a big pay bump for this upcoming season and next would be a strange precedent...and not one that I would want.

    • Had Funchess been practing? I thought he had to practice for two weeks before being able to come back?
    • Oh you were right on that one.  I still won, but I missed out on having highest score of the week by .32 points.  Our league pays out for highest weekly scores. 
    • I think there's a danger with any position of getting enamoured with the 40 time, I'd put 3 cone over it certainly. However, as always never go by just one metric, and never put metrics over film.    For all that was written about him being a below average athlete, if you compare  him to some of the 'good' SS's in the league he matches up pretty well:   Willis 4.55s (40)/7.15s (3 Cone) Collins 4.53s (40)/7.53s (3 Cone) Chancellor 4.69s (40)/7.36s (3 Cone) Jones  4.51s (40)/7.43s (3 Cone)  Adams  4.56s (40)/6.96s (3 Cone)    etc etc... 
    • CeeDee Lamb would be the dream pick imo. Reminds me a lot of Hopkins/Thomas, good size, great route runner and hands. Means he could take on a high volume of targets in the short/intermediate range, something I think Frank Reich badly needs (that's why he was high on signing Funchess). Put him on the boundary opposite Hilton and Campbell in the slot and we have serious options. Not as high on Ruggs when we already have Hilton.   I like Mack as a lead back, but not 25 carries a game. I would prefer a legit RB2 to take some of that load off him, preferably a RB to compliments his game, so a heavier, more physical, north/south RB. This draft has options in the mid round.
    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
