“I’d just like to announce that I’ve signed a four-year deal and I’l be staying here as a Bronco,” Gillett told Broncos Live.
“That will take me out til I’m 34 so I’m very excited about that. the club’s done me a good deed and looked after me for sure.”
There have been murmurs earlier in the season that Gillett had already re-signed, and the 29-year old emphasised how much of a process sorting out a long-term contract can be.
“Obviously contracts take a bit of time and (news) papers like to speculate and stuff like that and do their job. But today’s the announcement that I’ll be staying on for another four years.
“Being a one-club player at the Broncos is a very special thing to do and I’m more than happy to be staying here and spend the rest of my career here as a Bronco.
“It’s a great thing for my family too that supports close by and I’m looking forward to the next four years.
Gillett has currently totalled 180 games for the club after making his debut in 2010.
