The Los Angeles Chargers signed Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey to a one-year extension through 2020 on Tuesday.
He was entering the final year of two-year, $15 million contract signed in March 2018. Multiple outlets reported the value of the extension at $9 million.
Pouncey, 30, started all 16 games and earned his fourth Pro Bowl selection in his first season with the Chargers in 2018. He played 954 of L.A.’s 995 offensive snaps.
“From day one, Mike has been everything we thought he’d be and more,” general manager Tom Telesco said. “He’s an unquestioned leader, both in the locker room and on the field, who has earned the respect of teammates and coaches alike. His relentless work ethic — there have been times where we’ve had to fight to keep him off the practice field — and toughness are contagious. Mike’s dependability is invaluable, and we’re excited to have secured our Pro Bowl center through the 2020 season.”
Miami’s first-round pick (15th overall) in the 2011 NFL Draft, Pouncey started 93 games in seven seasons with the Dolphins.
