4. Kenny Moore II is entering a pivotal contract year
This upcoming season will be a big year for Kenny Moore II for a multitude of reasons. After the Colts shut down Moore’s attempt at a new contract last offseason, Moore had a down year as he and new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley struggled to get on the same page. In addition to that, Moore missed the last five games of the season with an ankle injury.
He finished the season playing just 12 games, recording 65 tackles, four for a loss, four pass deflections, and one sack. Far less production than Moore’s 2021 Pro Bowl season when he recorded 102 tackles, six for a loss, one sack, one forced fumble, and four interceptions.
Now, after some tough conversations this offseason, Moore avoided being traded and is now on the same page with defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, as they are working on a plan to bring the elite version of Kenny Moore II back.
That's exactly what Moore would need to be if he’s going to get a nice contract next summer. After building himself up from an undrafted player that was cut by the New England Patriots into one of the league’s best players, Moore has to ball out this season in order to secure himself a big contract.
