The Indianapolis Colts and running back Nyheim Hines agreed to a three-year, $18.6-million extension Friday, his agents told ESPN's Field Yates.

Hines' new deal contains $12 million guaranteed and will keep him in Indianapolis through 2024.

The 24-year-old's average salary of $6.2 million would currently rank 11th in the NFL, according to Over The Cap.

Hines has developed into one of the league's best receiving backs in his three seasons, catching 170 passes for 1,227 yards and four touchdowns.

He is set to once again back up sophomore Jonathan Taylor after the most productive season of his career in 2020.

Hines set career highs in catches (63), receiving yards (482), receiving touchdowns (four), rushing yards (380), and rushing scores (three).

The 2018 fourth-round pick has also averaged an NFL-best 14.9 yards per punt return since entering the league.
