Michael Griffin was a former star with the Texas Longhorns. Now he'll be rewarded with a big extension with the Tennessee Titans.

Michael Griffin is likely well-remembered by Texas Longhorns fans. The defensive back played in all 12 of his games as a true freshman in 2003 and earned All-Big 12 honors in a 2005 season that ended with him snaring a crucial interception in the Longhorns' Rose Bowl win over the USC Trojans. Now Griffin is being shown some love by the team that drafted him, the Tennessee Titans.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Griffin has signed a great big extension with the Titans. He is locked up for the next five years in a contract that is worth up to $35 million. $15 million of that money is guaranteed.

The Titans selected Griffin as the No. 19 overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. Since then, the safety has become an All-Pro and a two-time Pro Bowl selection. The Titans don't want to let his talent slip away. Griffin is just one of many Texas defensive backs that the Titans have picked up over the years.
