Dolphins' Mike Pouncey agrees to contract extension
MIAMI (AP) The Miami Dolphins' Mike Pouncey has agreed to terms on a $52.2 million, five-year contract extension that makes him the NFL's highest-paid center.
The deal averages $10.4 million per year. Pouncey, who is going into his fifth season with the Dolphins, had been due to earn $7.4 million in 2015, the final year of his original contract.
Pouncey was involved in the Dolphins' bullying scandal in 2013 but is a two-time Pro Bowl player. He missed the first four games of the 2014 season following hip surgery, yet still made the Pro Bowl as a guard.
He was a Pro Bowl center in 2013 and is expected to move back to that position this season.
