Colts defense over the past two seasons. Hunt has been good against the run and has 5 sacks in 2018. The 31 year-old is up for a new contract following the season https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Henry-Anderson-Jersey , so how much would his services cost when he hits free agency?Current ContractHunt signed a 2 year, $4,100,000 contract in the 2017 offseason. A part of his contract was a $500k bonus he could earn in 2018.His Play Under That ContractHunt had 1.5 sacks in 4 seasons with the Bengals. He’s had 6 with the Colts over the past two. He’s been a key contributor on both sides of the ball and is considered to be an “Above Average” player according to Pro Football Focus. As of Week 15, he’s played in 629 defensive snaps, which means he’s on the field for the Colts defense 67.3% of the time. He has also been on 125 special teams snaps, which is good for 32.6% of the time. His usage on defense is higher than any other defensive lineman, with the exception of Jabaal Sheard. The Market / Similar PlayersSince Margus Hunt is a 4-3 defensive end, we should compare him to other 4-3 defensive ends. Hunt is going to be entering his third contract and he will be 32 years-old entering next season. The following players were in similar positions as Hunt when they signed their most recent contract:Chris Long — Philadelphia EaglesWilliam Hayes — Miami DolphinsAdrian Clayborn — Tampa Bay BuccaneersLong signed his contract at the same age as Hunt. Hayes signed his contract at 32 years old (33 when the season started) and Clayborn signed his at 29 years old (30 when the season started). All play Hunt’s position.Chris Long2 year, $4,500,000 with $3,000,000 (66%) Guaranteed | $2,250,000 Average Per YearLong’s best years were clearly behind him, whereas Hunt might be peaking right now, but Long was a productive high snap percentage player and his versatility as a pass rusher and run stopper make him a good comparison. William Hayes1 year, $4,050,000 with $4 Joe Haeg Jersey ,000,000 (99%) Guaranteed | Fully Guaranteed ContractHayes was playing at a high level in St Louis/Los Angeles and his first year in Miami was marred with some injuries. While Hayes definitely got more than he deserved, it shows that mid-tier 4-3 defensive ends like Hayes (and like Hunt) will make at least a few million per year. This definitely isn’t a perfect comparison, but it’s an important contract for agents to use when vouching for your mid-tier veteran pass rusher.Adrian Clayborn2 year, $10,000,000 with $5,500,000 (55%) Guaranteed | $5,000,000 Average Per YearClayborn was coming off the best year of his career when he signed his contract (like Hunt) and while his best skill is as a pass rusher, he improved a lot as a run stopper in Atlanta, playing a high percentage of snaps. Clayborn’s contract is the best comparison of the three depicted. The only difference with this contract was that Clayborn signed it a couple years younger than Hunt, which makes a difference. Average of the 3 Contracts2 Year, $7,500,000 with $5,250,000 (70%) Guaranteed | $3,750,000 Average Per YearContract ProjectionI expect Margus Hunt to receive a 2 year deal with a decent portion guaranteed. If we take into account the average of the comparable players John Simon Color Rush Jersey , the signing style of Chris Ballard and the increase in the salary cap, I expect Margus Hunt’s contract to look like this:2 Years, $8,200,000 with $2,850,000 Guaranteed35% of the Contract is Guaranteed$4,100,000 Average Per YearThis contract is very similar to what other players have been demanding in free agency. The 35% guaranteed number is consistent with what Ballard offers to his players; he tends to reduce the amount of money guaranteed and makes it up in bonuses and higher base salaries. This contract also takes into account the projected 7-8% increase in the salary cap. Adam Vinatieri started his career as a young kicker in awe of the stats of a Hall of Famer such as Morten Andersen.As a rookie in New England, the lofty numbers seemed as out of reach as a 70-yard field goal.“I remember playing against him early in the league going, so many points, no one’s even going to come close,” Vinatieri said.Come close?Vinatieri is on the brink of passing Andersen in career field goals and total points and putting the final bows on a career that has him destined for Canton, Ohio.The 45-year-old Vinatieri kicked field goals of 35, 31 and 28 yards on Sunday to match Andersen for most field goals in NFL history with 565.Vinatieri added an extra point to finish with 10 points in the game, putting him 33 shy of matching Andersen (2,544) for the most points scored in NFL history.“That’s the one,” Vinatieri said. “Nobody every pays attention to who has the most field goals. It’s who’s got the most points. They almost run hand-in-hand. It’d be fun if it happens.”The scoring mark could fall in a few weeks.But on a soggy Sunday in Philadelphia, Vinatieri at least snagged a share of Andersen’s field-goal record. The Colts couldn’t take advantage in a 20-16 loss to the Super Bowl champion Eagles, setting the stage for Vinatieri to set the field goal record next week at home against the Houston Texans.“It’s obviously special,” Vinatieri said https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Chester-Rogers-Jersey , “but gosh dang it, when you do it on a close game and you lose, it just doesn’t feel quite the same. It’s a record that’s been a long time coming. I just appreciate the opportunities I have.”Andersen needed 709 attempts to set the record; Vinatieri just 670 in 23 seasons to tie.“We put him in situations to give us three and he delivers every time,” Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton said.Vinatieri was already the NFL’s postseason record holder for scoring (234) and field goals (56); and he hit two Super Bowl winners in the final minute. He’s won four Super Bowls and was the only unanimous selection on the Super Bowl 50 Golden Team.He made 263 field goals in 10 years with the New England Patriots and has 302 with the Colts.Few fans will forget the two kicks he made in the Snow Bowl, or “Tuck Rule” game, to help New England beat Oakland in a divisional-round playoff game following the 2001 season. It helped the Patriots capture their first Super Bowl.Last year, the oldest player in the league made a seemingly impossible extra point to force overtime in a December blizzard in Buffalo and helped keep the Colts within striking distance just 13 days later in monsoon-like weather in Baltimore.Last year, with a new long snapper and a new holder, Vinatieri made 85.3 percent of his field goals.“I like to step out there and kick field goals,” he said, “but it’s better kicking extra points, that’s for sure.”Vinatieri remembers talking to Andersen, one of only two full-time kickers in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, about the secrets to enjoying a long, successful career.Staying healthy, for sure.And the other?“Stubbornness, probably,” Vinatieri said, smiling. “There’s a lot of great young guys around and I think my joy of being around these young guys and trying to compete against guys half my age … I’d contribute that to it a little bit.”___
