Money is flowing in the NFL


The wave of contract extensions continued in the NFL on Monday. Miami Dolphins defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah notably hit the jackpot under a four-year, $65 million contract.

At least that’s what the NFL Network has said. Of this amount, $32 million is guaranteed.

Ogbah was a key part of the Dolphins defensive unit in 2021 with nine quarterback sacks and 41 tackles. He also knocked down 12 passes and forced a fumble in 17 games. In 2022, he will begin his seventh campaign on the circuit.

Defensive end Preston Smith will remain with the Green Bay Packers, since he has agreed with his club on the clauses of a four-year extension and $ 52.5 million. With the year remaining on his current contract, he could earn up to $71 million over the next five campaigns.

Los Angeles Rams tackle Joe Noteboom has agreed to a three-year, $40 million deal, with $25 million guaranteed. Also according to NFL Network, he could earn up to $47.5 million with performance bonuses.

Another tackle also chose to stay with his team, Jake Matthews. He will spend three more seasons with the Atlanta Falcons under a three-year extension that will allow him to average $18.5 million each year.

In addition, quarterback Tom Brady, who announced the end of his retirement on Sunday, will find his center Ryan Jensen. He signed a three-year, $39 million contract.

The Steelers have found their quarterback

In the free agent market, the Pittsburgh Steelers have signed quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. The contract – the terms of which are not yet known – will be confirmed on Wednesday, on the first official day of the 2022 NFL season.

The 27-year-old center was hired to take the Steelers starting job, left vacant by the retirement of Ben Roethlisberger.

Last season, Trubisky was Josh Allen’s backup for the Buffalo Bills. In four small field appearances in 2021, he completed 75% of the runs he attempted for 43 yards. Previously, the second overall pick in the 2017 draft was the Chicago Bears starter. In 51 games with the Illinois club, he completed 64% of his passes for 10,609 yards and 64 touchdowns. He was also the victim of 37 interceptions.
