Former Gators offensive tackle D.J. Humphries signs a three year, $45 million contract extension with the Arizona Cardinals.

Humphries, 26, cashes in on a $15 million per year salary, making him the third-highest paid left tackle in the NFL. Humphries is the second former Florida offensive tackle to sign a huge extension in as many NFL offseasons, as Trent Brown inked a four year, $66 million deal with Oakland last year.

The Cardinals picked up Humphries' fifth-year option for the 2019 season, after inconsistent showings from their 2015 first round pick. In a prove-it year, Humphries performed well while Arizona's first overall pick, quarterback Kyler Murray, earned NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.

Humphries earned three starts as a freshman at Florida in 2012 and was named to the SEC Coaches All-Freshman First Team offense. He proceeded to start 17 games for Florida, declaring for the NFL after his junior season following injuries in back to back seasons.
