Oakland running back turned defensive back Taiwan Jones was signed to a three-year extension worth $4.3 million Monday, taking his total contract to four years and $5 million.

On a day with little NFL news outside of the combine in Indianapolis, Reggie McKenzie and the Oakland Raiders made some news, announcing they have signed Taiwan Jones to a three-year contract extension (he was already signed through the 2014 season).

"It's a blessing," said Jones via press release. "It's rare to see and to know that my local team wants me to stay home, and it's just a blessing. I'm glad to be part of it, happy to remain here and there are big things coming that I am happy to be part of it. I feel good about next year. Obviously, I was able to do a lot of good things on special teams last year. Unfortunately, I didn't make the Pro Bowl last year, but that is something I'm shooting for this year."

The contract details were first reported by Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports and confirmed by Jones' agent.
