In a deal that has been rumored to have been in motion for the last several months, the Jets extended the contract of one of their most important defensive players, Safety Kerry Rhodes for the next five years.

The signing was confirmed by Rhodes on a cable TV sports show today and sources have told JetsInsider.com that the compensation is in the $35-40MM range with at least $20MM guaranteed.

Rhodes is entering his 4th season with the Jets and has been probably the most consistent player on the teamís defense for the last two seasons. Lat year, Rhodes had 52 tackles, 2 sacks and 5 INTís.
