The New Orleans Saints picked up a big victory on the field today, and cornerback Marshon Lattimore had a monster win for his bank account after the game.

Lattimore, who shook off an injury to help the Saints shut down Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers this afternoon, has reportedly agreed to a five-year, $97.6 million contract extension with over $68 million guaranteed.

That's the largest full guarantee at signing for a cornerback in league history, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Lattimore, a 207 first-round pick and three-time Pro Bowler, was in the final year of his rookie contract.

Now, he's set to remain a fixture in the New Orleans secondary for the next half-decade.

Lattimore had three tackles and a pass defensed in the Saints' 38-3 win over the Packers on Sunday. Overall, New Orleans held GB to 229 yards of total offense and intercepted Aaron Rodgers twice.

Safety Marcus Williams and rookie cornerback Paulson Adebo recorded the two picks.
