Eagles Sign Tackle Lane Johnson to a MASSIVE One-Year Extension


The Philadelphia Eagles have lost some household names to other teams in free agency this year. But they spent big money today to keep another. According to multiple reports, the Eagles have inked tackle Lane Johnson to a one-year, $33.44 million extension.

Johnson and the Eagles agreed to a one-year extension that will pay Johnson $33.44 million, with $30 million guaranteed, to keep him in Philadelphia through the 2026 season.

Lane Johnson is one of the top offensive tackles in the NFL. He hasn’t allowed a sack in the past two seasons. Johnson kept that streak alive throughout the Eagles’ run to the Super Bowl, even while playing through a torn adductor.

Johnson underwent surgery to repair the torn adductor after the Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2022 and is one of three Eagles’ offensive tackles to be named to multiple All-Pro teams. Jason Peters and Bob Brown are the others.

The 32-year-old tackle’s 2023 cap number for 2023 was over $23 million. However, the new contract lowers that number to $14.8 million, giving the Eagles close to $10 million in cap relief.

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni called Johnson “the best tackle in the NFL” in December.
