Left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson will make the cash. (Or at least he’ll make it first.)
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets and Ferguson have agreed to terms on a multi-year extension.
Bob Glauber of Newsday first wrote last month that Ferguson would be first to get his new deal, a report that was quickly denied all around. (Always a good sign the report is true.)
Ferguson made his first Pro Bowl in 2009, playing his best football under vaunted offensive line coach Bill Callahan. Ferguson had two years left on his rookie contract, but the Jets wanted to lock him up early.
See, A.J.: Not every team remains on hold.
UPDATE: Ferguson got a six-year, $60 million extension tacked on to his rookie deal.
