Kenny Moore II was on the field at the Colts’ organized team activities on Wednesday, but he is not participating. The Pro Bowl cornerback is unhappy with his contract and feels he is underpaid, given his performance and his importance to the defense, a source familiar with the situation told Joel Erickson of the Indianapolis Star reports.

Two years remain on the extension Moore signed in June of 2019, a deal worth $33 million in new money over four years and $36,414,760 overall, that made the young star the NFL’s highest-paid nickel cornerback at the time, but his average salary does not currently place him among the top 20 cornerbacks in the NFL.

Moore II is scheduled to make $6.75 million in 2022 and $8.245 million in 2023.

“Everything’s voluntary at this point,” Colts head coach Frank Reich said. “Obviously, you guys know how we feel about Kenny. Every player’s got to make his own decision.”

Moore II stood on the sidelines during practices, interacting with fellow defensive backs like Stephon Gilmore and coaches.

Organized team activities are the first opportunity for the Colts to get 11-on-11 work in the system new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is installing.

“I’m glad he’s here,” Reich said. “I know he didn’t get the work today, but I’m thankful he’s here, seeing and hearing everything that’s going on.”

But Moore II’s presence on the field does not change the fact that he believes he deserves a new deal, reflecting the way he’s played since signing his four-year extension.
