While his future with the Indianapolis Colts remains uncertain, Kenny Moore recently took some time to express his commitment to the franchise.

Back in January, when Kenny Moore stood by his locker for his final media availability session of the 2022 season, it was a very somber conversation with the media as Moore honestly questioned his future with the Indianapolis Colts. Understanding that he’s entering the final season of his contract, and the fact that Indy is entering a new chapter as a franchise with a new coaching staff and a rookie quarterback, Moore wasn’t sure where he would fit in this next chapter. However, Kenny Moore did make clear that he loves Indianapolis and would be hurt if he never put on a Colts jersey again.

While his future is still largely uncertain, Moore recently took to Twitter to express his commitment to the Colts. Moore posted a picture of himself preparing to run out of the tunnel at Lucas Oil Stadium and captioned the image “there’s more in me to represent, more in me to stand for. #ForTheShoe.” This seems like a post from a person that is making plans to be in Indianapolis next season.

Will Kenny Moore return to Colts in 2023?

Moore has stated that he would like to stay in Indianapolis but after all, the NFL is a business and there’s no telling how the business will unfold for Kenny Moore and the Colts this offseason. He went to the team last offseason asking for an extension and reworked contract but Indy wasn’t interested in having that conversation with two years remaining on Moore’s deal. With just one year remaining now, those talks should be a bigger priority for the franchise.

However, the Colts also have to worry about contract situations for Jonathan Taylor, Michael Pittman Jr., Grover Stewart, and many more contributing players, so it’s hard to say where exactly Moore will be prioritized by the franchise. Additionally, with Indianapolis possibly trading with the Chicago Bears for the No. 1 pick, Moore could end up in a trade package heading to Chicago.

Wherever Kenny Moore is playing football next season, he’ll be hoping for a bounce-back year after a somewhat underwhelming 2022 season. Moore was stamped as one of the best players in the league in 2021 when he was voted to his first Pro Bowl, but in 2022, Moore took a step back as he dealt with injury. He ultimately played in just 12 games for the Colts as he admittedly struggled to adjust to the new scheme and coaching staff.

If he’s back in Indy next season, it’ll be year two with Gus Bradley and company, and Moore should be more comfortable in the system. We’ll see if Kenny Moore will have that opportunity with the Colts in 2023.
