Owens, an undrafted rookie from Maine who made the roster in 2006, was captain of the special teams unit last season and has a team-high 45 special teams tackles over the last three years. The 5-foot-10, 225-pound Owens also served as a backup fullback.
Owens got his most extensive playing time in 2008 after starter Greg Jones suffered a season-ending ankle injury in early December. Owens finished the year with three touchdowns, two rushing and a fumble return for a score.
Details of his extension were not released.
