Colts sign OT Braden Smith to $72.4M extension

Offensive tackle Braden Smith agreed to a four-year, $72.4 million deal with the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday.

Smith stabilized the right tackle position as a second-round pick in 2018. General manager Chris Ballard said negotiations with Smith and linebacker Darius Leonard were designed to produce long-term extensions before the start of the 2021 regular season.

“You’re never going to regret paying a great player (laughs),” Ballard said Monday. “I don’t give a crap what position the guy plays.”

Drafted 37th overall as a guard out of Auburn one pick after the Colts selected Leonard, Smith allowed only one quarterback hit and zero sacks in 2020, based on Pro Football Focus film review.

“If you’re naming one of the guys who I think is one of the better right tackles in the league, it’s Braden Smith,” coach Frank Reich said in December. “The way he is playing this year, he is playing lights out. He has been a model of consistency through every game. I’m not sure he’s had a bad day in practice or on Sunday, so the guy is a stud.”

ESPN reported the contract includes $42 million guaranteed.
