INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts have signed three-time All-Pro guard Quenton Nelson to a contract extension.

The team announced the deal late Saturday, though it did not release terms.

ESPN reported it was for four years with an average annual payout of $20 million, with $60 million guaranteed.

Both would be record numbers for a guard.

Nelson has been selected to Pro Bowls in each of his first four seasons and could have become a free agent in March.
