Receiver Mike Thomas signed a three-year, $18 million contract extension Thursday that includes $9 million guaranteed. It locks him up through the 2015 season.

Fullback Montell Owens signed a three-year extension earlier in the week that will pay him $11.275 million through 2015, with $9.275 million in new money and $4.65 million guaranteed.

The Jaguars can afford to lock up their core players because they started the season $35.4 million under the cap.

Thomas could be the latest in a short list of Jaguars who get new deals. A fourth-round draft pick in 2009, Thomas leads the team with 20 receptions for 212 yards and a touchdown. He has 134 catches for 1,485 yards and six scores in three seasons.
