Aaron Wilson reports that Strief’s five-year deal includes $8.5 million guaranteed and will pay him an average of $4.1 million per year. This would bring the total value to $20.5 million.
Strief, 30, is one of the best right tackles available in the free agent market. However, NFL teams have been reluctant to pay right tackles in recent years, so it will be interesting to see the financial terms of the agreement.
