Browns, Myles Garrett officially reach contract extension

The Cleveland Browns officially announced a five-year contract extension with Myles Garrett Wednesday afternoon. 

The deal will keep the defensive end in the orange and brown through 2026. The extension is worth $125 million with $100 million in total guarantees. 

Garrett officially announced the news on social media Wednesday afternoon. The news comes after sides were reportedly close to a deal as recently as yesterday.

Since taking over front-seven duties, Garrett has been a terror on the pass-rush, as the former Texas A&M Aggie collected seven sacks in nine games started during his 2017 rookie season. The production would only increase in 2018, as Garrett would pick up 13.5 sacks in 16 games started and would collect his first Pro Bowl and second-team All-Pro bid. Despite playing only 10 games in 2019 due to getting suspended after getting in a physical altercation with Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Mason Rudolph, the 24-year-old was still able to pick up 10 sacks. 

The Browns begin training camp July 28. 

Here is the official team announcement.
