The Chargers and Liuget agreed on a multi-year deal, the team announced on Tuesday. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported it's a five-year extension for Liuget worth $58.5 million with $30 million guaranteed, per a source involved in the situation.
The organization views the 2011 first-round draft pick as a key piece of their future, Rapoport noted last week.
Liuget, 25, has started 61 of a possible 64 games over the past four years, leading the defensive line in snaps. Although he struggles at times against the run, he's the rare Chargers defensive star capable of pushing the pocket to harass opposing quarterbacks.
