NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the deal is for three years, worth $36 million with $15 million guaranteed, including $2.5 million guaranteed in Year 2. The deal pays more than $13 million in the first season and $24.5 million over the first two years.
It might be a haul to pay a 35-year-old, but Whitworth was by far the best left tackle hitting the open market -- and there appears little immediate aid in the draft. He sat No. 18 overall on Around The NFL's Top 101 Free Agents list. The next true left tackle on the list doesn't pop up until Russell Okung at No. 46.
The 11-year pro ranked as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 overall tackle in 2016 and was the best pass blocker among the group.
Now Snead and new coach Sean McVay must continue plugging the plethora of holes on the roster.
