The deal is reportedly a three-year, $18 million extension that includes a $4.2 million signing bonus — sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Glowinski appeared in 11 games and started in nine for the Colts this season after being claimed off waivers from Seattle on Dec. 18, 2017.
The right guard played a pivotal role in the Colts’ success up front, as the unit allowed the fewest sacks (18.0) in the NFL. Indianapolis also boasted top-10 rankings in third down percentage (48.6), first downs per game (23.2) and yards per game (386.2).
Glowinski, 26, will enter his fifth season as a pro in 2019. He has 46 career appearances, including 28 career starts. With their right guard locked up, the Colts are set to return all five members of the starting lineup next season.
