NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Michael Roos told the Tennessee Titans he wanted to wrap up contract negotiations before the 2008 season started. Team officials obliged their left tackle, agreeing to a six-year, $43 million extension.

The team confirmed the deal Saturday that makes Roos the third-highest paid left tackle in the NFL behind Orlando Pace and Walter Jones. His contract was set to expire after the 2008 season.

The deal, originally reported in The Tennessean, includes $15 million in guaranteed money, including a $4 million roster bonus. The 6-foot-7, 315-pound Roos, who has started 48 consecutive games, could earn up to $1.5 million more from Pro Bowl berths.
