Default Jets Extend D'Brick

Jets managed to get one of the core four signed.This is a surprise to everyone as we all believed Revis or Mangold would get done first.However D'brick would always be the easier contract to do as there are a few recent LT deals to hit the market for comparison,and his high wage this year made it easier to avoid the 30% rule.

The New York Jets have agreed to terms on a contract extension with OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson, a person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press.

NFL Network's Michael Lombardi reports the extension is worth $60 million over six years.

Ferguson had one year, plus an option year, remaining on his rookie deal signed in 2006, worth a total of $13 million.

The Jets are expected to announce the deal Thursday.

The star tackle, who switched agents to sign with Brad Blank in February, will get $34.8 million in guaranteed money, and his average of $10 million per season matches Dolphins OT Jake Long's record for an offensive lineman, a team source tells NFL Network's Jason La Canfora.

The total of Ferguson's contract is now worth $73.622 million, with $60 million in new money.

Ferguson is one of four high-profile Jets players seeking new deals this offseason, along with CB Darrelle Revis, C Nick Mangold and LB David Harris.

Unlike his teammates, Ferguson worked very quietly and without public display to get his new deal, a factor in him becoming the first of their young core players to get his extension, a source with knowledge of the situation told La Canfora.

Revis said he wants to become the highest-paid player at his position and the Jets are reportedly willing to offer him a contract worth over $100 million.

Also Wednesday, The Jets agreed to terms with OL Vladimir Ducasse, a second-round pick out of UMass, to a four-year deal worth $3.25, according to Lombardi.

Ducasse is expected to start at guard for the departed Alan Faneca, but could also back up Ferguson at OT, where he played at college.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

You got a first round QB to protect.

You got a quality LT.

You pay to keep the LT to protect the QB.

In the greater scheme of things, 10mill really isn't that much. Totally forgot the name of the Guard (and too tired to look it up) who signed a contract worth 8mill a year but in a few years 10mill for a quality LT will look real good.

He was the most important guy to get locked up imo. The Revis situation will sort itself out.

Agreed, pay the man.

A crucial position for the Jets and a good deal, I think. Agree with the posters above, this is one bit of business that they simply had to get done.

Is there a nice bit of upfront money to negate Matt's query about the cap?

I would have thought so. And D'Brick doesnt seem to be the type of guy that forgets his signing bonus to moan about his pay in the later years.

I wonder if there's a chance Mangold finds his way to the open market.

LT is a premium position, and he was probably the easiest guy to get done.

Revis at the moment is playing like the best defender in football (and assuming he keeps that up in 2010, which isn't the given people seem to be assuming it is...), that's just too dominant to allow to leave... where are they finding the money for Mangold, who is 'just' a C..?

Could someone find themselves chasing the league's best C on the FA market?

There is alwasys a chance that either Mangold,Harris or Revis hit the open market.Revis is looking to be the highest paid defensive player,Mangold will be the highest paid centre and may ask for guard money.These aren't easy contracts situations and it's made worse by the 30% rule.It wouldnt surprise me if we can't re-sign them all.

It’s true, I just don’t know that it’s all that big of a deal.

Basically the deal is going to get paid as originally advertised unless the player has an injury so serious in the next 2 seasons that his career is threatened.

IF he’s injured after 2010 (the contract is guaranteed for skill) the Jets COULD cut him after a year with no cap charge or without owing him more than the $5.3m for this year.

If he’s injured before the end of the 2011 season, again the team has a lot of protection.

In either case of course, the player becomes an unrestricted free agent, so even if it’s something like a torn ACL the Jets are likely to want to keep the player. It would have to be a rare, catastrophic injury for the team to want to cut him before the end of 2011.

So yes, if that happens then Tannenbaum is going to look like a genius. Otherwise it’s a total non-story.
