Eagles Sign Lane Johnson To Huge 1-Year Contract Extension

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Philadelphia Eagles and star right tackle Lane Johnson have agreed to a huge one-year contract extension that will keep the All-Pro with the team through the 2026 season, as per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The deal is a one-year, $33.445 million contract extension that includes $30 million guaranteed. Johnson played through the 2022 playoffs with a torn adductor, which he underwent surgery for in February.

Last season, the 32 year-old Johnson was named a first-team All-Pro for the second time and earned his fourth Pro Bowl selection. He has not allowed a sack since Week 11 of the 2020 season, according to Pro Football Focus.

This extension will lower Johnson’s cap hit for the 2023 season. It was scheduled to be over million, the highest on the team after the Darius Slay extension last week.

Since the start of the 2016 season (including playoffs), the Eagles are 61-30-1 with Johnson in the lineup and 10-22 without him.

The Eagles drafted Johnson in the first round of the 2013 draft. He played college football for Oklahoma.
