It looks like Danny Woodhead has something to be thankful for today on this Thanksgiving.

Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reported Thursday that the Patriots and Woodhead have reached a deal on an extension to keep him in New England through 2012.

According to the report Woodhead received $425,000 as a signing bonus to go with his $395,000 in 2010 salary.  He’s also reportedly slated to earn $550,000 in 2011 and $700,000 in 2012, along with playing time incentives worth a possible $575,000 next year and a possible $600,000 in 2012.

Woodhead played well on Thursday against the Lions, rushing for 32 yards on 8 carries (4.0 avg) during their 45-24 win over Detroit.
