New Orleans Saints left tackle Terron Armstead will sign a five-year contract extension with the team, reports ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the deal has a base of $64.5 million with $38 million guaranteed for injury and $25 million fully guaranteed.
Armstead, a third-round pick by the Saints in the 2013 draft out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff, has started 29 games in his three NFL seasons.
“There’s not a left tackle I would trade him for in the league,” Saints head coach Sean Payton said about Armstead in December. “I really like the way he’s progressed. He’s smart, he’s athletic.”
The 24-year-old, who was a Pro Bowl alternate last season, is now expected to remain with the Saints through the 2021 campaign.
