The Vikings have signed safety Harrison Smith to a long-term contract extension, the team announced on Monday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter ​reports the extension is for five years and $51.25 million. It includes a $10 million signing bonus with $15.27 fully guaranteed, Schefter reports, and makes Smith the highest-paid safety in the league.

The Vikings drafted Smith in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft, and he has started in 52 of 53 games for Minnesota over four years.

In his four seasons with the team he has logged 234 tackles with 5.5 sacks, 12 interceptions and four touchdowns. Last year he was selected to his first Pro Bowl after recording 47 tackles and 1.5 sacks for the Vikings.
