Eagles, Lane Johnson agree to five-year contract extension

Friday January 29th, 2016

The Philadelphia Eagles and right tackle Lane Johnson have agreed to a five-year contract extension, the team announced Friday.

The extension keeps Johnson with the Eagles through 2021 and could pay him up to $63 million with $35.5 million in guaranteed money, reports Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Johnson, 25, was selected in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft out of Oklahoma by the Eagles. He has started in 44 out of 48 games during his time with Philadelphia.

Johnson was suspended for four games at the start of the 2014 season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
