5 yr $60 million extension signed.  That's the last piece for 2017.  Time to win another Lombardi.

Over on an different site, an orthopedic surgeon explained what likely happened, complete with pictures. If you didn't see it, this injury is the long bicep tendon at the rotator cuff, and is likely a very small tear. Last summer I was playing kick ball with the grand kids and from a dead stop started sprinting for home from 3rd base. When I sprint, my right hand shoots up in the air, and when it did, I got a partial tear with the upper long muscle tendon. Being the schmuck that I am about these things treated it with ice and rest as I had no mobility issues, with very little loss of strength, it just hurt like the dickens. After a few months I finally got a shot of cortisone which took care of it, along with an recurring case of golfer's elbow, and an arthritic condition in my right thumb. Tuitt will be fine, and expect him to be back next week.
