The Indianapolis Colts entered free agency with plenty of money to spend and they're spending it wisely so far. The latest signing for the Colts was to bring back Kenny Moore on a three-year deal worth $30 million. According to Adam Schefter, this contract makes Moore "the highest-paid nickel back in NFL history."

Moore has had an impressive career, especially when you consider that he played college ball at Valdosta State and went undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft. He originally signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent but didn't make their roster that season and landed in Indy instead. That's where Moore has remained ever since, appearing in 103 games since joining the Colts in 2017.

Moore has been a solid member of the Colts' secondary and put together a nice year in 2023. PFF gave him an overall grade of 77.4 and an impressive 79.3 coverage grade.

The Colts entered free agency with several free agents they were hoping to keep in Indianapolis and they've managed to do so for the most part with Moore becoming the fifth Colts free agent to come back. Michael Pittman was the biggest name to re-sign but this shows that the Colts are dedicated to keeping talent in town.

This was a smart move by the Colts and while it'd cost a pretty penny, maybe the team could make a bold move now and try to acquire L'Jarius Sneed from the Chiefs. That'd give the Colts one of the best cornerback groups in the N
