Demario Davis is locked into the Black and Gold for the next three years.

This may not seem like big news since it’s only a one-year extension, but it’s definitely something to discuss.

According to Field Yates, Demario Davis has agreed to a new deal with the New Orleans Saints through 2024 that lowers his base salary but comes with up to $6 million in incentives.

The importance of this deal is that Davis is one of the biggest leaders in the locker room and it keeps him around on a deal that works for both sides.

There’s no change to his 2022 salary, but his 2023 base will drop $250k, but includes a $250 workout bonus and $1 million of his base salary is guaranteed.

However, it’s in 2024 that it becomes very beneficial for Davis. His base salary in 2024 will be $10 million with a $2 million roster bonus and up to $2 million in incentives.

Davis has had 100+ tackles in each of his four seasons in New Orleans and has been named to an All-Pro team three of those four years.

More importantly than his stats, Davis is just a chaos guy who loves to disrupt the opposing offense. He’s been a huge signing for the Saints after being an average linebacker with the Jets.
