New England is turning the page in another area this season, defense.
Patriots Lock Up Ninkovich For 3 Years
The extension through 2016 is worth more than $15 million with $8.5 million guaranteed, his agent, Craig Domann, tweeted.
Ninkovich, in his fifth season with the Patriots, is third on the team with 19 tackles. He has started the last 42 games, including six in the postseason. He had 18½ sacks the past three seasons, and has a half-sack this season.
Drafted by New Orleans in the fifth round in 2006, Ninkovich played just eight games in his first three seasons with the Saints and Miami Dolphins. The Patriots signed him in August 2009 after he was waived by the Saints.
