Patriots RB Danny Woodhead has a little something extra to be thankful for on Thanksgiving.
The diminutive back has reached a long-term contract extension with the Patriots, a source with knowledge of the situation told The Herald.
Woodhead has signed a contract that keeps him in New England through 2012. He received $425,000 as a signing bonus to go with his $395,000 in 2010 salary.
He's slated to earn $550,000 in 2011 and $700,000 in 2012, along with play-time incentives worth a possible $575,000 next year and a possible $600,000 in 2012.
More to come.
