Report: Texans sign Tunsil to 3-year, $75M extension
The Houston Texans are signing left tackle Laremy Tunsil to a three-year, $75-million extension, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
The deal includes $50 million fully guaranteed and $60 million in total guarantees, per Rapoport.
Tunsil is now the NFL's highest-paid tackle by average annual value. Trent Williams previously held the top spot with a $23.01-million average.
The 6-foot-5 blocker voiced his desire to reset the tackle market in December, saying that this offseason was the "perfect opportunity" based on how he was performing.
Tunsil is widely regarded as one of the league's best tackles, particularly in pass protection. He earned an elite 91.7 pass-blocking grade in 2022, per PFF.
The 28-year-old has made three Pro Bowls, all with the Texans, in his seven-year career.
Tunsil was selected 13th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. He was traded to the Texans ahead of the 2019 campaign.
