Report: Browns G Wyatt Teller agrees to 4-year, $56.8M extension

The Cleveland Browns have agreed to a long-term contract extension with guard Wyatt Teller, according to multiple reports.

The NFL Network first reported Tuesday morning that the Browns and Teller reached an agreement on a four-year contract extension worth $56.8 million with $29 million guaranteed.

A $14.2 million per year average would make Teller the third-highest paid guard in the league behind Washington’s Brandon Scherff and Kansas City’s Joe Thuney.

Teller, 26, figured to be a highly pursued free agent following the 2021 season.

Teller, a fifth-round selection of the Buffalo Bills in 2018, was traded to Cleveland in August 2019 for two late-round picks. He was named the team’s starting right guard later that season.

Browns place G Teller on reserve/COVID-19 list

The Cleveland Browns placed starting right guard Wyatt Teller on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

Teller, 26, started his ninth game of the season on Sunday in the Browns’ 41-35 win at Tennessee.

The reserve/COVID-19 list is for players who either test positive for the coronavirus or who have been quarantined after coming in close contact with an infected person.

A fifth-round pick by Buffalo in 2018, Teller has appeared in 32 games (25 starts) with the Bills (2018) and Browns.

Cleveland also activated defensive end Porter Gustin from the reserve/COVID-19 list and placed wide receiver Taywan Taylor (neck) on injured reserve. Wide receiver Ryan Switzer was restored to the practice squad from the injured list and defensive end Jamal Davis was released from the practice squad.

Gustin, 23, has 22 tackles in 10 games (three starts) this season. He was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Nov. 26.

Taylor, 25, did not catch a pass in three games this season. He sustained the neck injury last week in practice.
