J.T. Gray has carved out quite a niche for himself as a special teams standout, and the New Orleans Saints rewarded him with a contract extension, according to an ESPN report. 

The new deal will pay Gray $9.6 million with $2.4 million in guarantees, and he could earn as much as $11.1 million if he hits additional playtime incentives, according to an NFL Network report. 

Since signing with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi State in 2018, Gray has appeared in 67 games. Despite playing almost exclusively on special teams (Gray has played 109 defensive snaps in five seasons), he has recorded 66 career tackles. 

Gray has been honored as an Associated Press All-Pro twice in his career, first in 2019, when he landed on the AP’s second-team, and again in 2021, when he was named a first-team All-Pro after recording a career-high 16 special teams tackles.

He has led the Saints in special teams tackles in each of the last four seasons.
