Eric Wood contract details: four-year extension, $9 million to sign

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The short version: Eric Wood is now a very rich dude.

Financial details on the new contract signed by Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood have surfaced via Ian Rapoport of NFL.com: it's a four-year, $25.4 million extension with a $9 million signing bonus. Those four years add on to the one remaining season on Wood's rookie deal, meaning that Wood is now under contract through the close of the 2017 season.

Per Rapoport, the deal makes Wood one of the five highest-paid centers in the NFL. On top of the $9 million he'll make for signing on the dotted line, Wood will earn the $2.3 million in base salary he was already scheduled to make in 2013.

Let's rewind the clock to last December, when the Bills had all three of their starting interior linemen at the time - Wood, Andy Levitre and Kraig Urbik - represented by the same agency and approaching the end of their respective rookie deals. The Bills retained Wood and Urbik on separate four-year deals that total $40.4 million in base salary and $12.5 million in signing bonuses. Levitre, of course, signed a six-year, $46.8 million deal with a $10.5 million signing bonus with Tennessee this past March.

How does the Wood contract strike you now that the financials are out, Bills fans?
