Desmond Trufant Agrees To $69M Extension With Falcons

Trufant's payday has cemented his place as one of the NFL's elite.

Desmond Trufant has agreed upon a five-year, $69 million extension with the Atlanta Falcons. Still, Falcons coach Dan Quinn doesn't expect to have his lockdown cornerback for organized team activities, which begin on April 17. According to the Huffington Post's Jordan Schultz, it's worth almost $69 million, including $42 million in guarantees.

Last season, Trufant played nine games before going on injured reserve with a pectoral injury, missing the team's run to the Super Bowl, where they lost in overtime to the New England Patriots.

As he was already under contract through the 2017 season, the extension could keep the 26-year-old Trufant in Atlanta through the 2022 season.

Earlier in the offseason, GM Thomas Dimitroff said it was the team's priority to re-sign Trufant and much to the fans appreciation, the NFC Champions made sure their star corner was signed to a long-term deal.

The Falcons lost Trufant midway through last season, and while the effects were largely obscured by the explosive offense Kyle Shanahan helped craft, the damage revealed itself at the worst possible time.

A first-round pick in 2013, Trufant has recorded 168 tackles, 48 passes defensed, 7 interceptions and 3 sacks in four National Football League seasons.

Trufant's deal now means the Falcons have extended both their number one and two corners in recent months as Robert Alford was recently paid $38 million over four years.
