Colts’ DeForest Buckner drops hilarious take after Derrick Brown’s huge extension

Colts defensive tackle DeForest Buckner chimed in after seeing Derrick Brown’s massive payday.

That player was DeForest Buckner, another premier player at the position that should be in line for a payday soon. The 30-year-old sounded off on Twitter following Brown’s extension.

saying “DT market crazy. Y’all better start teaching your kids to put their hand in the dirt.”

Will defensive tackles continue getting premier deals? Will Buckner be next to cash in?

Colts may want to pay DeForest Buckner sooner rather than later

Buckner is reportedly looking for his new deal following a career year in 2023, via NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The three-time Pro Bowler has one year left on his current contract before he hits free agency.

Buckner has a right to request a raise, as he had just as many sacks last year as Brown has in his career (eight). While Brown had more tackles and an elite Pro Football Focus (PFF) grade last year, Buckner was no slouch either. Brown ranked fourth with a 90.1 grade, while Buckner ranked 14th with a 81.8 mark. Both players were also good against the run, posting elite production in that category.

“Brown’s reputation as a run stuffer continues to grow, as he finished 2023 as one of just two interior defenders to earn a 90.0 run-defense grade,” via PFF. “He played a position-leading 427 run-defense snaps and generated an incredible 31.4% positively graded play rate. The Panthers interior defender recorded 110 total tackles and 50 run stops, both of which led the position.”
