Browns sign C JC Tretter to 3-year contract extension
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.
