Cowboys Sign G Zack Martin To Six-Year, $84M Extension


Adam Schefter reports that the Cowboys and G Zack Martin have reached an agreement on a six-year, $84 million extension that includes $40 million guaranteed on Wednesday.

  • Todd Archer adds that the total value of Martin’s deal comes out to a seven-year, $93.41 million contract with a $20 million signing bonus.
  • The Cowboys actually pick up around $3 million of cap space with this move.

At $14 million per year, Martin becomes the highest-paid guard in NFL history. Jaguars G Andrew Norwell held the top spot for guards the past few months after receiving $13.3 million per year from Jacksonville as a free agent in March.

In fact, Martin is now the second-highest paid offensive lineman behind only Giants LT Nate Solder.

Reports from earlier in the week mentioned that Martin and the Cowboys were really close to an agreement and a deal could be in place at some point in the near future, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.

Martin, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $8.967 million contract when the Cowboys picked up his fifth-year option for the 2018 season.

Martin was set to make $9.341 million for the 2018 season.

In 2017, Martin appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 1 guard out of 77 qualifying players.

We had him featured in our Top 25 – 2019 NFL Free Agents list.
