Report: Eagles extend Lane Johnson through 2026, add $33M to RT's deal
The Philadelphia Eagles are adding an extra year and $33 million to Lane Johnson's contract, giving the All-Pro right tackle a pay bump and signing him through 2026, reports NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
The deal reportedly includes $30 million guaranteed.
The Eagles announced that Johnson signed a new contract on Friday but didn't reveal the terms of the deal.
The move will reduce Johnson's 2023 cap number from $24.2 million to approximately $14.8 million, saving the Eagles around $9.4 million in cap space this year, according to Garafolo.
"My whole goal is to retire an Eagle," Johnson said Friday, according to team reporter Dave Spadaro. "That's what I'm going to do. I'm just excited to be here, be as fortunate as I am to be with one team for as long as I have."
Jawaan Taylor, who signed a four-year, $80-million deal with the Kansas City Chiefs this offseason, is the NFL's highest-paid right tackle in average annual salary, according to Spotrac.
Johnson, a cornerstone of Philadelphia's premier offensive line, has been one of football's best right tackles when healthy. The 32-year-old, whom the Eagles drafted fourth overall in 2013, hasn't allowed a sack in 967 pass block snaps played over the last two seasons, according to PFF.
The four-time Pro Bowler has made 127 regular-season starts since entering the league.
