The Indianapolis Colts are not negotiating a contract extension for Marlon Mack.

Jim Irsay said the team hasn't engaged in talks with Mack, who has one year left on his contract.

"Marlon Mack, we love him. ... We want him back, and he wants to be back, really," the owner said. "There were some misreports that we were pursuing an extension there. That's not the case."

Those "misreports," however, came directly after Chris Ballard listed Mack among the "guys we want to extend."
