D’Brickashaw Ferguson, the Jets’ bookend left tackle, charged with protecting star QB Mark Sanchez, signed a 6 year extension worth a potential $ 60 M today which will keep the borderline All Pro with the New York Jets. Under the terms of the extension, Ferguson will be guaranteed no less than $ 34.8 M.
The team and Ferguson have “verbally” agreed to terms on a long-term extension that will keep him with the Jets through 2017, according to Ferguson’s agent, Brad Blank.
With the six-year, $60 million extension, Ferguson will be making $73.6 million over the next eight years, including $34.8 million in guarantees, according to a person with direct knowledge of the terms of the deal. The person requested anonymity because the deal has not been signed yet.
The guaranteed money is a record for offensive linemen. Ferguson is expected to sign tomorrow.
Ferguson, best friends with Mark Sanchez, has won himself quite a contract–a record contract for offensive linemen in fact–a good sign considering the Jets are negotiating a new contract with their franchise player, CB Darrelle Revis, who is also expected to set a benchmark with his next contract.
