Reports: Eagles sign RT Lane Johnson to $33.4M extension

Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro right tackle Lane Johnson signed a one-year contract extension worth $33.4 million, of which $30 million is guaranteed, per multiple reports Friday.The extension stretches Johnson’s contract by one year through the 2026 season and brings the Eagles’ total potential financial commitment remaining to him to $80.75 million over four seasons.The deal comes after Johnson, 32, delayed surgery and played in the postseason despite a torn abdominal tendon. As head coach Nick Sirianni phrased it, Johnson continued to play like the “best tackle on the planet.””He’s a warrior,” quarterback Jalen Hurts said of Johnson. “He’s a true warrior and a very important piece of this team. He’s been doing great things for a very long time, and I’m very grateful to have him. We’re grateful to have him and I’m happy that he’s kind of coming out of this thing clean.”Though Johnson missed two games before returning to face the New York Giants in the postseason in January, nobody was questioning his toughness.
