DeForest Buckner has agreed to a two-year extension with the Indianapolis Colts worth $46 million.

Buckner was entering the final year of a four-year, $84 million contract signed after joining the Colts in a trade from the San Francisco 49ers in 2020, when he was a first-team All-Pro selection.

For the 30-year-old Buckner, the $23 million average annual value in his new deal ranks fifth among defensive tackles, behind Kansas City's Chris Jones (31.75 million), Las Vegas' Christian Wilkins ($27.5 million), Baltimore's Justin Madubuike ($24.5 million) and Carolina's Derrick Brown ($24 million).
