Washington Redskins right tackle Jon Jansen signed a new five-year contract with the team, agent Rick Smith confirmed this afternoon.

Jansen had two seasons left on his deal, but the sides negotiated a five-year, $23 million contract that includes $10 million in guaranteed money.

How this will help the Redskins’ 2007 salary cap situation is unclear. Under his previous deal, Jansen’s cap number was slated to be $5.85 million.

“This was not a cap deal — it was a re-extension,” Smith said.

Jansen, 31, has played his entire eight-year career with the Redskins, starting every game he’s played. At the end of the contract, he will be 35 years old.
