Chicago announced Wednesday that it gave Charles Leno Jr. a four-year extension. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported the extension is worth $38 million with $21.5 million in guarantees, per a source informed of negotiations.
Slated to become a free agent after this season, Leno would enter September as the league's 14th-highest paid left tackle based on annual average, per the Chicago Tribune.
"We were so fortunate to [have him]," Bears general manager Ryan Pace said early in the offseason, per the Tribune. "He's got great athleticism. He's long. I like Leno a lot. I like his makeup. I like his intelligence."
