The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced a long-term contract extension for Lane Johnson. Here are some reactions to the deal, starting with Johnson himself and then his teammates.
@fcoxx_91 you're up next! Enjoy that sun out there in hawaii— Lane Johnson (@Lanejohnson65) January 29, 2016
Congratulations to my my dude @Lanejohnson65 much deserved.......— Vinny Curry (@MrGetFlee99) January 29, 2016
Man birds sign 3 players (All Drafted by the team) to extensions. Definitely a Howie formula. Stop asking y'all know whose back in power..— Jamaal Jackson (@CenterStage67) January 29, 2016
Very happy for @lanejohnson65. Guy came into @Unbreakable a year & a week ago, committed fully. He puked 9 times first 3 times but committed to improving his hands, hips, head and heart as much as anyone we've ever had. Being great isnt hard: find out how hard the best works, do more than him!
Lane guarantee: remember that he had $3.1mm due this year and an option for over $11.1mm next. That's $14.2mm that was already "guaranteed".— Sam Lynch (@shlynch) January 29, 2016
Trent Williams' overall guarantee is $41.25M. $30M of it fully GTD at signing. I doubt Lane Johnson has $35.5M fully GTD at signing.— Joel Corry (@corryjoel) January 29, 2016
Johnson-Ertz, expected deals for Cox-Curry doesn't mean #Eagles can't afford Bradford. In fact, I'd say opposite as deals clear 16-17 space.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) January 29, 2016
As for Lane, $35.5M guar may seem excessive, but it's probably not full. Plus, #Eagles had 11.2M option for 17 and he's event moving to LT.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) January 29, 2016
Not necessarily. https://t.co/xXozT4XKv2— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) January 29, 2016
Ertz, Lane deals may be outdated by Year 3 when others in NFL get extended but Howie redid Cole, Herremans, Peters & now Celek on back ends.— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherNFL) January 29, 2016
Ken Sarnoff, Lane Johnson's agent: "People called Lane Johnson a Chip Kelly pick. Howie was the GM at the time. ...— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) January 29, 2016
Sarnoff, cont. "...I always thought [Howie] should have gotten credit for Lane’s being drafted and being drafted No. 4."— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) January 29, 2016
