Patriots Resign Mayo

The New England Patriots have resigned Pro-Bowl Line Backer Jerod Mayo for a five year contract extension. Jerod Mayo was drafted by the Patriots 10th overall in 2008 and has been excellent since then. He was voted AP Rookie Defensive Player of the Year and played in the Pro-Bowl last year for the first time after collecting a league high 175 total tackles. Last Sunday, Mayo snatched an interception from Washington Quarterback Rex Grossman with under a minute left and the Patriots up by seven. Mayo has proved that he is one of the best tacklers and defensive talents in the league and this is an excellent decision by the Patriots.
