Bills sign Sanborn to three-year, $3.3m extension

While one long-tenured member of the Buffalo Bills' special teams unit was waived on Friday, the team extended another one's stay. The Bills announced that they have signed long snapper Garrison Sanborn to a contract extension.

According to a league source, Sanborn's new contract is a three-year extension that will pay a total of $3.3 million over the lifetime of the deal. The three years are tacked on to the final year of his current contract, so he's not set to hit free agency again until March of 2018.

His new contract makes him one of the top five highest paid players at his position in the National Football League. In 2013, he was tied for the league lead in special teams tackles by a long snapper with Zak DeOssie of the New York Giants.

Sanborn first came to the Bills in 2009 after auditioning at a rookie tryout and quickly won the job. He's been a mainstay in Buffalo ever since, playing in every single game over the past five seasons.

Glad to see them take care of their own
Congrats Sanborn! Glad to have you here. Seems like quite a lot of money, but from what (little) I know I'd say he worth if. What do others think? Is he top 5 in the NFL at his position?
