Jalen Thompson, 24, and the Arizona Cardinals have reached an agreement on a new extension that may bring him over $40 million over the course of the deal.  

Last year, Thompson was a strong member of the team's defence. 

The Cardinals announced on Friday that they had agreed to a new three-year extension with Thompson that could keep him on the roster until 2025.

Following the announcement, NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero revealed the terms of the former Washington State star's contract. 

For the uninitiated, the supplemental draught is held for players whose eligibility status changed after the regular NFL draught pool deadline. 

The event lasts seven rounds, and teams that make supplemental selections must forfeit the same pick in the following regular draught. 

So Thompson's progression from supplemental pick to player guaranteed to make $24.5 million is quite impressive.

Jalen Thompson has 121 total tackles (79 solo), 3 interceptions, 7 passes defended, and 2 quarterback hits in 2021.

By re-signing Thompson for several more seasons, the Cardinals may have a Pro Bowl-caliber safety for an annual salary of only $13.3 million.
