Andrew Whitworth agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday.
National Football Post has learned from league source that the extension is for two years and worth $20 million overall.
Whitworth, 6-7, 335 pounds, was a second round pick of the Bengals in 2006 out of LSU and the extension runs through the 2015 season.
“Whit is a very fine player and also a team leader, so this is obviously good news for our team,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. “It’s good to get this done before the regular season begins, and I credit our front office as well as his side for making it happen.”
