Cardinals RB David Johnson signs three-year, $39 million extension

10:52 PM ET

TEMPE, Ariz. — David Johnson got his money.

The Arizona Cardinals running back signed a three-year extension Saturday, the team announced.

The deal is for $39 million, including $30 million guaranteed, and can be worth up to $45 million, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Johnson’s $30 million in guaranteed money is the third-highest figure among active running backs.

Earlier this week, Johnson said he wanted his deal done as soon as possible.

“Every player wants to have a contract done and know that they have a contract,” Johnson said then.

Now he does.

Johnson made it known this summer that he wanted a new deal. He held out of Arizona’s minicamp in June but reported to training camp. However, his impending contract was a constant topic every time Johnson spoke publicly.

Johnson’s extension came the night before he was about to enter the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, which was worth $2.9 million. He was scheduled to earn $1.9 million this season.

His new deal doesn’t come without questions, however.

Johnson, 26, has gotten injured in his last two games.
