The Houston Texans have just made some major news in the middle of the 2020 NFL Draft.

According to multiple media reports, Houston has signed Pro Bowl tackle Laremy Tunsil to a three-year, $66 million contract extension.

This makes him the highest-paid offensive tackle in NFL history. It’s not necessarily even that close.

Indianapolis Colts veteran Anthony Castonzo currently holds the high-water mark in terms of average annual salary at $16.5 million. That’s a major difference right t here. The $57 million in guarantees also represent a league record for the tackle position.

Acquired from the Miami Dolphins ahead of the 2019 season, Tunsil is among the best young tackles in the game. The three-year deal will still enable the 25-year-old former first-round pick to hit the open market again while he’s still in his prime.
