The Colts agreed to a contract extension with versatile running back Nyheim Hines on Friday, and the trickle-down impact will certainly reach Miles Sanders.
Per Field Yates, the 3-year, $18.6 million contract extension with $12 million guaranteed, also includes $6.2 million a year in new money per year making Hines one of the top 10 highest-paid running backs in the league and ties him to Indianapolis through 2024.
A terrific dual-threat running back, Hines was drafted by the Colts in the 4th round, 104th overall of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Over his first three seasons, Hines has logged 893 rushing yards and 1,227 receiving yards, with 13 total touchdowns over that span.
Here’s how that deal impacts Eagles running back Miles Sanders going forward.
