The Indianapolis Colts are re-signing Kenny Moore to a three-year, $30 million deal that makes him the highest-paid nickelback in NFL history, agents David Mulugheta and Trevon Smith of Athletes First told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Tuesday.

Moore saw significant improvement in 2023, adapting to the Colts' defensive scheme much better while his coaches also found ways to use him more efficiently.

He had the single-biggest game of his career in a November win over the Carolina Panthers, collecting two interceptions and returning both for touchdowns in the 27-13 win. Moore also posted six passes defended and 93 tackles last season, and a career-high eight tackles for loss.

A seven-year veteran and 2021 Pro Bowl selection, Moore has evolved from an undrafted free agent in 2017 to a player signing his third NFL contract that has become one of the preeminent slot defenders in the game. He staged a mild protest during the 2022 offseason when he was seeking a new deal, but the Colts denied his request because he had two seasons remaining on his contract.
