I believe he deserves it, and it shows the rest of the team if you work hard you get rewarded.

 

It's be absolutely amazing to see the transformation from where he was when he got here to where he is now. 

 

Congrats Kenny!

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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Pretty sure I read it rips up everything. The new money starts this season.

 Gee, ya think he got a at least $10M now to sign it?

    • With the way the Ravens have been sliding the last few weeks since that loss, I’m not all that concerned with them. Two very bad calls broke that game open for the ravens against us. I think if we were to meet again, I think it’d be more like the Greenbay game as far as the final tally  
    • They are playing great.  We will find out more next year about Eason.  It appears that Ballard has definitely hit on the 2018 and 2020 drafts.   2019 draft seems solid and has provided two starters(Ya Sin/Willis) with a possible 3rd and 4th in Campbell and Okereke.  Overall great job.  This next draft will show Ballard and his scouting departments ability.  A shortened college season will make it tougher to evaluate player potential but I believe this is the front office for the job.      
    • Defensive ly chiefs don't  seem as strong they are beatable
    • Pittman  didn't get  enough  targets on sunday
    • I think it might come down to who has the final better record, the Colts or Ravens.  Reason being is that Patrick Queen is his chief competition.  Since the positions don't directly compare, and the Raven's D by media default is more respected than ours historically, I would be concerned if they finish with a better record and/or playoff seeding, especially since we already lost to them at home.  But I hope you're right.  He's been fantastic and perhaps may get votes for All Pro.
