Nick Mangold, Jets Agree on 7-Year, $55 Million Deal
The Star-Ledger reported Mangold's new contract, citing a source with direct knowledge of the situation. According to the report, the two sides are still negotiating guaranteed money figures involved in the deal, but it is believed that Mangold will receive more than the $20 million guaranteed that St. Louis gave Jason Brown last year.
(Update: Mangold's new deal, which he signed Tuesday, comes with $22.5 million guaranteed.)
Mangold was set to earn $3.3 million in 2010, the final year of his rookie contract. He's started every game for the Jets since being selected in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft.
With Mangold locked up, the Jets' full attention now turns to Darrelle Revis, New York's star cornerback who has been a training-camp holdout while seeking a new deal.
