After acquiring center Rodney Hudson in a trade last month with the Las Vegas Raiders, the Arizona Cardinals reportedly added two years and $20.1 million to his contract.

Hudson’s new deal is for three years and $30 million, including the $9.9 million he was due to earn in 2021, NFL Network reported. It includes $16 million in guaranteed money, per the report.

On March 17, the Cardinals traded a 2021 third-round pick to the Raiders for the 31-year-old Hudson and a seventh-round pick in 2021.

Hudson, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, has missed only one game the past five seasons. He joined the Raiders in 2015 as an unrestricted free agent after four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.

He has started 127 of his 143 games since entering the league in 2011.
