The Indianapolis Colts have reached an agreement to re-sign free agent WR Josh BOYCE, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
The move could be a sign that Boyce, who was expected to be a free agent following the season, is returning to the team in 2018.
More importantly, it could also indicate that Boyces contract is in place, Rapoports sources say.
The Colts, of course, are in the market for a wide receiver.
They have several options on the open market, including the Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The news of the deal comes as the NFL season enters its final two weeks.
Rapopors sources say the Colts will likely have to make some roster moves to retain their wideout.
The Colts have been linked to a number of free agents, but Boyce is among the most intriguing.
Rapaport first reported the news on Thursday.
Boyce has been a top-15 receiver in the NFL in each of the past three seasons.
He caught 51 passes for 834 yards and eight touchdowns in 2017.
He’s set to make $7.25 million this season, $3.6 million in 2018 and $5.75 million in 2019.
