Cowboys' Martin signs extension to become NFL's highest-paid guard
Zack Martin and the Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms on a contract extension that will reportedly make him the highest-paid guard in the NFL.
Martin, a four-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All-Pro, has agreed a six-year extension believed to be worth $84million, with $40m guaranteed.
He was set to enter the final year of his contract in 2018 and was slated to earn a base salary of $9.3m.
Martin had held out of the Cowboys' organised team activities, skipping all nine voluntary practices.
But he returned for mandatory minicamp this week and can now focus on helping the Cowboys bounce back after a disappointing 2017 season in which they missed the playoffs.
