Cowboys Sign Tyron Smith to Eight-Year Extension

Cowboys Sign Tyron Smith to Eight-Year Extension

Jim McIssac/Getty Images(OXNARD, Calif.) –  Tyron Smith is staying in Dallas for the long-haul.
The Cowboys signed the Pro Bowl offensive tackle to an eight-year contract extension through 2023; a deal that could be worth as much as $110 million.
Smith, 23, will receive $40 million guaranteed, as well as a $10 million signing bonus, according to ESPN.  He had two years remaining on his previous contract after the Cowboys picked up the fifth-year option of his rookie deal in the spring.
“We talk about building a program and building a football team and he was the first player that we took three years ago in that draft,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s just been everything we’ve wanted to build this program and this team around.”
Smith was drafted by the Cowboys with the 9th overall pick in 2011.  Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, drafted 5th overall that same year, signed a five-year, $70 million extension on Tuesday.

Cardinals Reward Cornerback Patrick Peterson with Five-Year Extension

Cardinals Reward Cornerback Patrick Peterson with Five-Year Extension

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Defensive playmakers are becoming a premium in the NFL and the Cardinals are taking care of their own as they’ve rewarded cornerback Patrick Peterson with a five-year extension worth $70 million with $48 million guaranteed.
“Happy to announce my 5 year extension with @AZCARDINALS ! $70M and $48M Guaranteed!! #AZCardinals #P2Nation #YearOfTheCardinal,” Peterson tweeted Tuesday night.
Petterson is now the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL in terms of total money. He beats out the Browns’ Joe Hadden, who got $68 million earlier this offseason.
Petterson was the fifth overall pick in the 2011 Draft, and has been everything the Cardinals hoped they’d be getting. He’s made three Pro Bowls and is a two-time NFL All Pro. He’s considered one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL and is also an explosive returner, and sometimes mixes in with the team on offense. Since his rookie season, Petterson is third in the NFL in interceptions with 12.

Darrin Klimek/Thinkstock(TEMPE, Ariz.) — The Arizona Cardinals signed free agent linebacker Ernie Sims to a one-year contract, the club announced on Tuesday. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Cardinals’ Patrick Peterson Ready for New Contract

Cardinals’ Patrick Peterson Ready for New Contract

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(PHOENIX) — Fresh off Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman getting a his record-setting contract, Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is ready to cash in.
The Cardinals and Peterson are in the midst of extension talks for the All-Pro cornerback’s rookie contract. Sherman recently agreed to a four-year deal worth $57 million, and Peterson thinks he’s in the same class.
“I’m making OK money right now, but I’m just not making his money right now,” Peterson said.
The 23-year-old Peterson is set to make $2.88 million in 2014, and $10 million in 2015.
“I think cornerbacks are definitely worth the dollars that they get because now this league is a passing league,” he added. “You need that shutdown corner to lock down one side of the field, or like myself, go out there the entire field.”
This past season, Peterson made 42 tackles and intercepted three passes.
