Browns sign C JC Tret­ter to 3-year con­tract ex­ten­sion

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - SPORTS -

CLEVE­LAND (AP) » The Browns have signed steady cen­ter JC Tret­ter to a three-year, $32.5 mil­lion con­tract ex­ten­sion.

Tret­ter has started all 40 games — and not missed one play— since sign­ing with Cleve­land as a free agent be­fore the 2017 sea­son. The 28-year-old, who spent his first three NFL sea­sons with Green Bay, has helped so­lid­ify a Cleve­land of­fen­sive line that lost 10-time Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas be­fore last sea­son and has strug­gled this year.

Tret­ter’s deal in­cludes $23 mil­lion guar­an­teed. He was in the fi­nal year of a three-year, $16.75 mil­lion con­tract he signed two years ago, and the Browns didn’t want to risk los­ing him.

Tret­ter didn’t miss a snap last sea­son de­spite play­ing with a se­verely sprained an­kle, which lim­ited his prac­tice time and re­quired daily treat­ments.
