Earlier this week Stanley became the second-highest paid left tackle with his contract extension.
Stanley becomes the NFL’s second-highest-paid left tackle, striking a $98.75 million extension, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. His annual average of $19.75 million trails only that of Houston’s Laremy Tunsil ($22 million per season).
Stanley’s deal maxes out at $112.866 million, the source said. He did surpass Tunsil in three areas: signing bonus ($22.5 million), total guarantees ($70.866 million, over $16 million more than Tunsil) and payout through March 31 ($47.116 million).
