Ray Thompson has extended his contract with the Cowboys, keeping him in North Queensland until the end of the 2017 season.
The 25-year-old, currently sidelined with a fractured cheekbone, has played 94 NRL games over seven seasons so far.
"Absolutely it's a great feeling to be able to continue my time at the Cowboys," Thompson said.
"We have a baby on the way and being around the family with a club that's always done the right thing by me is just fantastic.
"I'm really grateful to continue at the club for another two years."
