Dolphins, Mike Pouncey agree to terms on contract extension

Mike Pouncey was never going anywhere because the Dolphins weren't letting a Pro Bowl player go.

He's definitely not going anywhere now as the team and center Mike Pouncey just agreed to a multi-year deal that makes him the highest paid center in the NFL, per multiple sources.

The numbers on the deal are not yet known.

But Alex Mack was previously the highest-paid center in the NFL at an average of $8.8 million and this year Rodney Hudson signed a deal that paid $8.9 million per season. Mack signed an offer sheet with Jacksonville last year which the Cleveland Browns matched.

Pouncey's deal surpasses both Mack and Hudson.

A club source confirmed this evening the team began negotiations with agent Joel Segal Thursday evening. Through the day Friday both sides exchanged offers resulting in an agreement moments ago.

Pouncey is a two-time Pro Bowl selection, including 2014 when he made the team as a guard.
