The Cleveland Browns have signed their newly acquired wideout Jerry Jeudy to a three-year extension. Jeudy is now tied with the organization through the 2027 NFL season.

The Browns acquired Jeudy in a trade with the Denver Broncos earlier this month, giving up 2024 fifth-round and sixth-round picks. At the time, he was about to enter the fifth year of his rookie deal, which came with a salary of around $13 million.

The Browns didn’t disclose the financial terms of the agreement, but according to ESPN, Jeudy’s extension is worth $58 million and comes with $41 million in guaranteed money.

“When we acquired Jerry via trade this spring, it was with the vision that he would become a core member of our offense in 2024 and beyond,” Browns general manager Andrew Berry said in a statement announcing the extension. “He is a scheme-versatile receiver with high-level ability to separate against man coverage and a diverse number of ways to produce on the perimeter or in the slot.”

During his four years with the Broncos, who drafted him in the first round of 2020, Jerry Jeudy showed flashes of talent but arguably never got to fulfill his full potential in Denver. He has 211 catches, 3,053 yards, and 11 touchdowns as a pro.
