Windsor DT Crawford signs five year extension with NFL’s Dallas Cowboys

Yesterday, Tyrone Crawford was rewarded for his gridiron performance.

The 6’4, 290 pound defensive tackle from Windsor, Ontario announced on Twitter yesterday that he signed a five-year contract extension with the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys:

In 31 games with the Cowboys, Crawford has recorded three sacks, 38 tackles and 15 assisted tackles. He missed the entire 2013 season due to a torn Achilles Tendon. Terms of the extension were not officially disclosed but several media sources have indicated that the contract’s value is 45 million dollars with 25.7 million in guarantees and another 17.5 million fully guaranteed.

Previous to the Cowboys, Crawford suited up for NCAA Division 1 Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) team, Boise State Broncos.  He played at the high school level north of the border for Catholic Central Hornets of the Windsor County Secondary School Athletic Association (WCSSAA).
