The details of Desmond Clark’s two-year contract extension are in.
Clark, who was entering the final year of his contract, is signed through 2010 now as he receives $5 million in new money.
The veteran tight end will be paid $2 million in advance on the contract that was brokered Sunday afternoon by agent Brian Mackler.
It is similar in structure to what the Bears did with defensive end Alex Brown last week in a two-year extension for him. Clark, who turns 31 in April, has been a model of consistency since signing a six-year contract in 2003. He has missed only two games in those five seasons.
