The Philadelphia Eagles signed former first-round draft pick Lane Johnson to a contract extension on Friday. FOX Sports NFL Insider Mike Garafolo reports that the Eagles and Johnson have agreed to a five-year extension that could pay him up to $63 million.
The Eagles drafted Johnson with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Johnson was installed as the starter at right tackle in the first game of his rookie season. Since, he has stayed at right tackle for the most part, but he has also seen some snaps at left tackle whenever left tackle Jason Peters was out with injury.
