Just as the Patriots scolded one outside linebacker -- scratching Adalius Thomas from Sunday's game -- they rewarded another.

First-year Patriot Rob Ninkovich has signed a two-year contract extension, according to the NFLPA's Web site. Ninkovich started his NFL career with the Saints in 2006, and also spent time with the Dolphins.

Ninkovich, 25, is set to make base salaries of $650,000 in both 2010 and '11.
