Colts, LT Castonzo reportedly close to $42M deal


The Sports Xchange

The Indianapolis Colts and left tackle Anthony Castonzo reportedly are finalizing a four-year extension worth $42 million.

Castonzo will receive $35 million over the first three years of the deal, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Thursday.

Castonzo, the Colts’ first-round pick in 2011, has started 60 games in his first four seasons. He was the only Colts offensive lineman to start every game last season.

His deal follows the five-year, $65 million contract signed by wide receiver T.Y. Hilton last month — satisfying the offseason goals of Colts owner Jim Irsay.
