4. Who gets extended next?

Finding a first-round draft pick who signed a second-contract with Cleveland is about as rare as finding a Zebra drinking out the Cuyahoga River.

That changes with Myles Garrett, who should sign a massive contract with the Browns in near future.

The kind of money doled out to Garrett will astonish Browns fans, as the Browns haven’t really had a player of his caliber since returning to the league in 1999. The best player the Browns have had since then was Joe Thomas, and the future Hall of Famer was probably underpaid. For about three years, Thomas was making $10.5 million.

Garrett will shatter the extension signed by Thomas, if recent trends suggest anything. The Cowboys extended DeMarcus Lawrence, giving the pass rusher a five-year, $105 million deal with $65 million guaranteed.

Other men who excel at getting to the quarterback earned the following: Donald signed a six-year contract extension worth $135 million ($40 million signing bonus, $87 million guaranteed)

Flowers got five years and $90 million from Detroit with $56 million guaranteed.

Some may wonder whether Garrett swinging a helmet at Mason Rudolph will impact his value? The answer to that is, no.
