The Seattle Seahawks and left tackle Duane Brown agreed to a three-year $36.5 million extension on Saturday, according to multiple reports.
Brown, who turns 33 in August, is entering the final season of his contract. He is slated to make $9.75 million this season before the extension kicks in.
Brown, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, confirmed the extension on his Twitter account with two posts.
"Looking forward to playing the rest of my career here! #GoHawks," Brown said in the first before thanking the Seahawks' leadership in the second.
"LETS GOOOO!!!!! Thank you so much to Paul Allen, John Schneider, Pete Carroll and the Seahawks organization for this opportunity! Time to get to work now and WIN!"
Brown was acquired from the Houston Texans last October. He played in nine games for the Seahawks and was a Pro Bowl selection.
He played in 133 games for the Texans over nine-plus seasons and was a Pro Bowl pick in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
Brown has started all 142 NFL games in which he has played since being a first-round pick out of Virginia Tech in 2008.
