CLEVELAND — Right wing tackle Jack Conklin has reportedly agreed to a four-year, $60 million contract extension to stay with the Cleveland Browns, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Friday.
Conklin, who is in the final year of a three-year, $42 million deal signed in 2020 as a free agent, will formalize the pact in the coming days, the source said on condition of anonymity since the team still has not confirmed the information.
Conklin has bounced back this season after sustaining a partial patellar tendon tear in 2021. The 28-year-old has pushed his own limits during rehabilitation to get back to the game quickly, and he’s been a starter for 12 games this season, after missing the first two weeks of activity.
The six-foot-six, 310-pound athlete has established himself as a mainstay for the Browns. The latter invested heavily on their offensive line by agreeing on a long-term basis with the star guard on the left flank Joel Bitonio (three years, $48 million) and the guard on the right flank Wyatt Teller (four years, $56.8 million).
