A former Patriot signed a deal to become one of the highest-paid slot cornerbacks in the NFL on Thursday.
Kenny Moore joined the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in May 2017, but the 5-foot-9, 185-pounder was waived by the team during final cuts in September. Two years later, he inked a four-year extension with a max value of more than $36 million, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
The #Colts and CB Kenny Moore have agreed to terms on a 4-year extension, source said, one that makes him the highest paid slot CB in the NFL on new money. He had a year left, then an RFA tag. This replaces the tag and more. He can also play outside, but is their starting slot.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 13, 2019
Details on the #Colts extension with slot CB Kenny Moore: He was to make $645K this year and would be an RFA next year at $3M or so, depending on the level. On his new deal, he’ll make $30M in new money from 2021-2023, with a max value of more than $36M, source said.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 13, 2019
Moore tallied 76 tackles with 1.5 sacks, three interceptions, 11 passes defensed and a forced fumble in 2018. It was the 23-year-old's first season as the Colts' primary nickel cornerback.
