The New York Giants signed left tackle Andrew Thomas to a record-setting $117.5 million contract extension just before the start of training camp Wednesday.

The five-year deal for the 2020 first-round draft pick includes $67 million guaranteed at signing, the most ever for an offensive lineman.

The guaranteed money eclipses the previous record of $64.1 million received by Baltimore Ravens tackle Ronnie Stanley in 2020, according to ESPN.

“Ecstatic about that,” Giants general manager Joe Schoen said of Thomas’ extension. “He played at a high level. He’s our type of guy.”

Thomas, 24, is now under contract through the 2029 season. He made 16 starts last season and has started 44 of his 45 games through his first three campaigns.

Thomas earned second-team All-Pro honors in 2022 after anchoring a line that finished fourth in the NFL in rushing yards per game.

He is the third Giants player to receive a lucrative long-term deal this offseason, joining quarterback Daniel Jones (four years, $160 million) and defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence (four years, $90 million).
