Quinnen Williams received a long-term agreement from the Jets after his greatest season.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport report that the 25-year-old has signed a four-year, $96 million, $66 million guaranteed contract.
His $24 million salary is second only to Aaron Donald of the Los Angeles Rams among interior defensive linemen.
Williams might sign an extension for the first time this summer. He still has one year and $9.59 million on his rookie contract, but this new deal guarantees the Jets' defensive lineman for a long time.
Jets general manager Joe Douglas seemed to promise their young superstar care.
"You can't say enough wonderful things about the player, his approach to running, pressuring the quarterback, and his teamwork and character. Quinnen is key to our success this year "told reporters.
The team will review their offseason plan in a group meeting. We will do what's best for the team and organization."
Douglas and head coach Robert Saleh have built a young defense with great potential. Jordan Whitehead, Ahmad "Sauce" Gardner, and Williams are key. Quincy Williams, another top linebacker, received an extension earlier this offseason.
