We interrupt the LeBronathon (and vacation) for big news. League source says D’Brickashaw Ferguson has agreed to a contract extension. #Jets
Randy Lange also has a blog post about the extension on NYJets.com. You can consider it official once the Jets put it on their site, even though the Jets have not officially confirmed the move. D’Brick handled these negotiations the same way he carries himself, quietly. No demands to the media, no threats or outbursts. As we have always said, these things are best handled behind closed doors.
No terms of the deal have been released yet. Once that information is available it will be updated in the discussion thread.
