The New Orleans Saints and Marshon Lattimore have agreed to a contract extension, reports ESPN’s Adma Schefter.

The offer will potentially pay him an average of $19.52 million annually, tying him with Marlon Humphrey of the Ravens for the second-highest salary per season for a cornerback in the league, or as much as Jalen Ramsey of the Rams atop the salary list for the position.

In Sunday’s dominating 38-3 victory for New Orleans over Green Bay to open the 2021 season, Lattimore also suffered a thumb injury late in the first half that will require surgery.

UPDATE 9/14: Surgery took place Tuesday.

Lattimore played in the second half with a protective cast and will likely wear something similar when he returns to action. He is considered week-to-week.
