Jaguars wide receiver Mike Thomas has agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension, Eric Edholm of Pro Football Weekly reports.
According to Edholm, Thomas’ extension is worth $18 million and includes $9 million in guarantees.
A 2009 fourth-round pick (107th overall) out of Arizona, Thomas caught 48 passes for 453 yards and a touchdown as a rookie. Thomas had an increased role in 2010, catching 66 passes for 820 yards and four touchdowns and through four weeks this season, has 20 receptions for 212 yards and a touchdown.
Overall, Thomas has 134 receptions for 1,485 yards and six touchdowns in his 34-game career.
Signed to a four-year, $2.257 million rookie contract, Thomas was signed through 2012 and was earning a league-minimum base salary of $525,000 this season. Prior to the extension, Thomas was scheduled to earn $615,000 in 2012, but his salary next season was likely to at least double based on reaching playing-time incentives in his rookie contract.
