The Miami Dolphins have agreed to terms with linebacker Jerome Baker on a three-year contract extension worth $39 million, including $28.4 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports via Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.  This according to Baker's agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Baker is one of the Dolphins' defensive leaders and brings energy on and off the field. He specializes in pass coverage, and helped the Dolphins grow from the worst scoring defense (30.9 points per game allowed) in 2019 to the fifth-ranked scoring defense (21.1) in 2020.

A 2018 third-round pick, Baker was approaching the final year of his rookie deal. He was asked last week about his pending free agency and where he saw Miami in the picture. It was a foreshadowing of this deal.

"I want to play here for the rest of my career. I love it here. I love the fans. I love the organization. I love everybody here," Baker said. "Yeah, I definitely see myself playing here for a long time."
