Colts signed LT Anthony Castonzo to a four-year, $42 million contract extension through 2019.

According to's Ian Rapoport, the extension will pay Castonzo $35 million over the first three years. He received PFF's 12th highest tackle grade last season out of 84 qualifiers. Andrew Luck must be thrilled to have his personal body guard on board for another four seasons. Castonzo would have hit free agency in 2016 had a deal not been reached.

The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder said he has the "sense" the Colts and LT Anthony Castonzo "aren't close in contract talks."

Colts GM Ryan Grigson said the team is in "active negotiations" with the contract-year left tackle, but those negotiations do not appear to be going anywhere. Holder confirmed the Colts view Castonzo as a "keeper," but his asking price may be too high right now. Costanzo is set to make $7.4 million this season in the fifth-year option of his rookie deal.

Colts GM Ryan Grigson confirms the team remains in "active negotiations" with contract-year LT Anthony Castonzo.

Aug 18 - 6:35 PM

Owner Jim Irsay said the Colts want to extend contract-year LT Anthony Castonzo before Week 1.

The Colts are also in talks with T.Y. Hilton, but Castonzo is the higher priority. One of the league's top pass blockers, Castonzo allowed two sacks and 24 hurries last year, finishing as PFF’s No. 11 left tackle. Castonzo will command at least $7 million in average annual value.
Aug 8 - 5:25 PM

LT Anthony Castonzo confirmed he's in the midst of extension negotiations with the Colts.

Castonzo is entering the final year of his rookie contract. The Colts would be wise to lock up their best offensive lineman, one that gave up just two sacks and 24 hurries while playing every single snap on Andrew Luck's blind side last season. Castonzo will command at least $7 million in average annual salary.
Aug 3 - 11:39 AM

Colts LT Anthony Castonzo is expected to command $9 million to $10 million annually on his next contract.

The 22nd overall pick in the 2011 draft, Castonzo is entering the final season of his contract. He is one of only a few effective Colts linemen; Andrew Luck's pocket mobility and toughness routinely mask Indy's protection flaws. Castonzo turns 28 early next month. He is owed $7.438 million this year.
Jul 20 - 2:13 PM

The Colts see Anthony Castonzo as their long-term left tackle.

It's notable as Castonzo is slated to play out this season on a fifth-year option worth $7.438 million. If a long-term deal doesn't get done, he'll be an unrestricted free agent in 2016. Castonzo has started on the blind side for every game of Andrew Luck's NFL career and is coming off a top-12 season in PFF's tackle grades.
Apr 13 - 7:41 PM

Colts exercised LT Anthony Castonzo's fifth-year club option for 2015.

The Indianapolis Star reported earlier this month that Castonzo's option is worth $7.4 million. The move keeps him under team control for a bargain $8.9 million over the next two seasons. The No. 22 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Castonzo has started all 16 games each of the past two years. He's been a solid, if far from dominant, protector on Andrew Luck's blindside.

The Colts are expected to exercise LT Anthony Castonzo's fifth-year club option of $7.4 million for 2015.

The move will keep Castonzo signed for a total of $8.9 million over the next two seasons. Castonzo graded out as a top-20 left tackle by Pro Football Focus, but struggled in pass protection -- allowing 39 quarterback hurries in 2013. The deadline for teams to exercise fifth-year options is May 3.

Colts LT Anthony Castonzo (knee) is expected to play in Week 1.

Castonzo sprained his left MCL in the preseason, but the injury was "mild" and he'll return to practice on Thursday. Indianapolis' offense will be at near-full strength as it prepares to take on the Raiders' sieve-like defense.

Colts LT Anthony Castonzo has been diagnosed with a sprained left MCL.

Castonzo's sprain is considered mild and the Colts are hopeful he'll be back for Week 1. In the meantime, they'll start Joe Reitz at left tackle in the preseason finale. Castonzo was ProFootballFocus' No. 32 overall tackle last season, but was 62nd in terms of pass blocking. Andrew Luck took 41 sacks in 2012 -- only Aaron Rodgers (51), Philip Rivers (49) and Andy Dalton (46) took more.

Colts LT Anthony Castonzo underwent postseason surgery on his foot.

Castonzo battled through a left high ankle sprain as a rookie, so we suspect the surgery was related to that. He isn't participating in pre-draft workouts. Castonzo projects as Indianapolis' Opening Day starter at left tackle.
Wed, Apr 25, 2012 02:04:00 PM

Colts rookie LT Anthony Castonzo has unofficially given up six sacks in nine games played this year.

Castonzo missed four games due to an ankle injury. The six sacks allowed aren't unruly, but it's not what the Colts expected after using the No. 22 overall pick on Castonzo in April. "He's making progress, but part of that in this league is you're going to have some tough days," coach Jim Caldwell said.

Colts LT Anthony Castonzo (ankle) has had no setbacks in his return to practice this week.

Castonzo expects to return Sunday against the Falcons after missing three games. Jeff Linkenbach will swing back to right tackle, and RG Ryan Diem is also expected to play for the first time in a month. It's a boost for Curtis Painter and the passing game.
