Browns’ Jerry Jeudy reportedly agrees to a three-year extension worth up to $58 million

The Cleveland Browns are all in for Jerry Jeudy.

Cleveland and the wide receiver have agreed to a three-year contract extension worth up to $58 million, including $41 million fully guaranteed at signing, according to Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The move comes shortly after the Denver Broncos traded Jeudy to the Browns in exchange for fifth- and sixth-round picks. Due to the completion of his rookie contract, he would have become an unrestricted free agent in March 2024. He is now tied to the Browns franchise until 2027.

Understandably, Cleveland wasted no time in striking a deal for the 24-year-old, as the team reportedly tried to acquire him before last season’s trade deadline.

Browns general manager Andrew Berry made a statement about the extension, saying Jeudy is “just entering his prime.”

“When we acquired Jerry via trade this spring, it was with the vision that he would be a core member of our offense in 2024 and beyond,” Berry added. “He is a versatile receiver with a high ability to separate against man coverage and a diverse set of ways to produce on the perimeter or in the slot. We felt the ability to add a passionate and competitive player with His combination of strengths would be an important part of our offense now and in the future.”

A first-round pick out of Alabama in 2020, Jeudy recorded 54 receptions for 758 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games with the Broncos last season. He perhaps showed the most promise during his 2022 campaign, catching 67 passes for 972 yards and six touchdowns.

The Browns hope to see Jeudy team up with quarterback Deshaun Watson as the team looks to build on its 11-6 record and wild-card loss to the Houston Texans last season.
