The Cincinnati Enquirer’s Joe Reedy first reported the deal.
The five-year extension is worth $55 million, with Atkins earning $22 million in the first six months, a person briefed on the deal told NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
Geno, a fourth-round draft pick, was slated to earn $1.4 million in the last year of his rookie deal.
“It means a lot, just that they believed in me,” Atkins said during a news conference. “… It shows young guys that do the right things on and off the field, and you will be rewarded, too. Now I can just kinda focus on football. … I’m happy to play football and help the team go to the Super Bowl.”
