Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard is definitely due a massive contract extension at some point. It’s just a matter of when, and apparently, the young star’s patience is wearing thin.
Leonard’s tweet on Friday evening suggested that he’s waiting for Colts general manager Chris Ballard to draw up a new multi-year deal:
This comes on the heels of San Francisco 49ers ‘backer Fred Warner signing a monster deal as he prepares to enter a contract year.
But that’s not the only notable move of late that has to have Leonard feeling antsy. His teammate, right tackle, Braden Smith, just got a brand-new contract worth four years and $70-plus million.
As a two-time, first-team All-Pro — wow, lots of hyphens there — Leonard has earned a big payday. However, the Colts are dealing with an unforeseen complication that might delay Leonard signing on the dotted line.
