Denver Broncos receiver Tim Patrick has agreed a five-year, $30m (£23.8m) extension, the NFL club have announced.

The deal will keep the 28-year-old out of free agency until 2023.

“I am honoured and humbled to have my contract extended for five years,” Patrick said.

He joins Browns receiver Jarvis Landry and Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins as players extending their deals before a deadline.

To celebrate the extensions, players are wearing custom clothing, including Tim Patrick’s “Broncos”.

“We appreciate everything Tim has done for us during his time with the team,” Broncos executive vice-president of football operations John Elway said.

“He always comes ready to play and is a tremendous person in the locker room.”

Earlier this week, Pittsburgh Steelers’ defensive end Stephon Tuitt agreed a five-year, $52.5m (£42.2m) extension, while defensive end Alex Okafor re-signed with the Saints for three years and $20m (£16.4m).

Elsewhere, New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley re-signed for five years and $24m (£19.3m) before a 24-hour deadline.

Barkley, who will have just turned 22 on 12 December, is the highest drafted running back in NFL history.
