Ian Rapoport adds that Dawkins’ contract includes $34 million guaranteed.
This new deal will keep Dawkins in Buffalo through the 2024 season.
Back in April, Bills GM Brandon Beane mentioned that they were discussing an extension for Dawkins, so it’s not a big surprise that they moved to get a deal done before the start of the regular season.
Dawkins, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Bills back in 2017. He was in the final year of his four-year, $4.18 million contract that included $1.93 million guaranteed.
Dawkins was set to make a base salary of $985,441 for the 2020 season before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
In 2019, Dawkins appeared in all 16 games for the Bills, making 16 starts at left tackle. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 25 offensive tackle out of 80 qualifying players.
