The New York Giants and All-Pro defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence have reached an agreement on a four-year, $90 million extension that includes $60 million in guarantees, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The deal makes Lawrence the third highest-paid defensive tackle in the NFL.
The 25-year-old Lawrence was on the fifth-year option of his rookie contract and is coming off a breakout season in which he recorded a career-high 7.5 sacks.
The Giants selected Lawrence with the 17th pick in the 2019 Draft out of Clemson — It was the first-round pick that the team acquired from the trade with the Cleveland Browns involving Odell Beckham Jr.
The 6-foot-4, 342-pound lineman has recorded 16.5 sacks, 116 tackles and four forced fumbles in his career.
