Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is expected to sign a monster contract extension.

According to Ian Rapoport, Garrett will sign a five-year extension with the Browns worth up to $125 million. The deal will include more than $100 million in total guarantees, with $50 million guaranteed at signing. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Well, we all knew Garrett was going to get a monster extension, but I’m not sure anyone expected it to be this big.

That is an absolutely gigantic contract for the star defensive end. A player on the defensive side of the ball getting more than $100 million always blows my mind.

Also, let’s not forget that Myles Garrett also pulverized Mason Rudolph in the head last year with a helmet and was promptly suspended.

Despite the fact that his suspension was laughably short, it’s kind of strange that a guy who got into so much trouble was then handed a $125 million extension.

Instead of getting thrown out of the league for doing something that could have potentially seriously injured Rudolph, he ended up signing a fat contract extension.

I’m not sure the NFL has any grounds to stand on anymore when it comes to talking about setting positive examples.

Either way, props to him for getting his money. That’s a lot of dough.
