Quenton Nelson, a left guard for the Colts, claimed that he wasn’t concerned about his contract over the summer. He would not even bring it up on Thursday.
According to Nelson, who was quoted by Zak Keefer of TheAthletic.com, “Respectfully, I’m not answering any inquiries concerning my contract.”
According to this week’s report from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Colts are working to find a way to sign Nelson to a long-term contract “hopefully this month.”
The $16.5 million average that Brandon Scherff received in a three-year, $49.5 million contract with the Jaguars this summer is expected to be surpassed by Nelson, 26, who has emerged as one of the best guards in the NFL. Both Joe Thuney and Joel Bitonio have contracts worth an average of $16 million annually.
On his fifth-year option, Nelson will be paid $13.75 million.
He has played in four Pro Bowls in as many seasons, and the 2017 season marked the first time he failed to make the All-Pro team due to a four-game injury absence.
