The Colts have reached an agreement with All-Pro left guard Quenton Nelson on a four-year, $80 million contract extension that makes him the highest-paid guard in the NFL by a wide margin, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

Nelson has been everything the Colts have wanted when they selected him with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft. He’s earned three All-Pro First Team and four Pro Bowl selections since entering the NFL. He has missed only three games in his career, all of which came in 2021.

With Nelson now under contract, the Colts have signed four of their draft picks in 2018 to contract extensions. That includes linebacker Shaquille Leonard, right tackle Braden Smith and running back Nyheim Hines.
