The Miami Dolphins signed wide receiver Jakeem Grant to a four-year extension on Wednesday, putting him under contract through 2023.

The team did not announce terms, but multiple outlets report the extension is worth up to $24 million. Grant was entering the final year of his contract in 2019, in which he is owed $720,000.

A sixth-round pick in 2016, Grant has 34 career catches for 471 yards and four touchdowns in 42 games.

A standout on special teams, the 26-year-old has returned 59 punts for 583 yards and two touchdowns and 58 kickoffs for 1,453 yards and one score. Grant’s 102-yard kickoff return against the Tennessee Titans in the 2018 season opener was the longest in the league last season.
