TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals completed an unprecedented three days of in-season contract activity by signing wide receiver Bryan Gilmore to a two-year extension on Monday.

The move came just before the deadline for contract adjustments that would count against this year's salary cap.

The Cardinals, who before this year almost never re-signed players still under contract, have re-signed or restructured deals with nine players since the start of the season.

On Saturday, Arizona signed offensive tackle L.J. Shelton to a five-year extension worth $20 million to $25 million. The deal reportedly gives Shelton another $7 million this season.

In other moves on Saturday, the Cardinals restructured the final three years of guard Leonard Davis' contract to give him more money this year, running back Damien Anderson signed a three-year extension, and tight end Steve Bush, kick returner-running back Josh Scobey and linebacker LeVar Woods got two-year extensions.

Linebacker Ray Thompson (four years) and punter Scott Player (two years) extended their contracts a month ago.
