The massive OT signs a massive extension.
The new deal tacks on 5 years and one option year to the two years he currently has left on his contract, essentially locking Ferguson up for 8 more years, with the total value close to $73.6 million, $34.8 million of which is guaranteed. A new record for an offensive lineman, surpassing Jake Long’s $30 million guaranteed money after being the number 1 overall pick.
Ferguson was one of four Jets who have asked to have their contracts re-done. The most vocal of them is CB Darelle Revis who has held out of some team activities and practices this offseason.
