The Cleveland Browns continue to invest heavily in their offensive line. According to multiple reports, the organization agreed to an extension with Wyatt Teller and made the highly-rated All-Pro guard one of the highest-paid players one his position.
Teller, who was set to become a free agent after the season, reportedly inked a four-year deal. He is set to earn $56.8 million during the duration of the contract while receiving $28 million guaranteed money.
With this move, the Browns position themselves to field one of the best offensive lines in football for the foreseeable future. The franchise already has All-Pro right tackle Jack Conklin, All-Pro guard Joel Bitonio, and 2020’s first-round pick Jedrick Wills Jr., who is among the top-rated young left tackles in the game, on long-term deals.
Wyatt Teller, the fifth-round selection for the Buffalo Bills, came in Cleveland without much fanfare via trade ahead of the 2019 season. Teller started the campaign as a backup but earned a starting spot in Week 9 and never looked back.
Since then, Teller became viewed as one of the best run-block guards in the league while also making big contributions in the pass blocking. He was especially stellar in 2020 when he helped the Browns to become one of the most efficient running offenses in the NFL and earned a Second-Team All-Pro nod.
