The Rams announced a five-year extension for linebacker James Laurinaitis on Saturday that will keep him with the team through 2017.
CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora reports the deal is worth $44 million overall, with $23.6 million guaranteed.
Laurinaitis, whom the Rams drafted with their second-round pick in the 2009 draft out of Ohio State, developed into one of the better middle linebackers in the league, even though working in the Rams' 2011 defense would probably give you pause on that notion.
