Sanchez has filled in admirably at punter for the Colts since All-Pro Pat McAfee retired following the 2016 season. The Hawaii product pinned 24 of his 57 punts inside the 20-yard line last season while ranking third in net punting average (42.7) and fifth in kickoff touchbacks (59). Unsurprisingly, the Colts have opted to reward him with an extension.
