Sources: Giants’ Lawrence gets $90M extension


New York Giants All-Pro defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence reached agreement Thursday on a four-year, $90 million extension, including $60 million guaranteed, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The deal makes Lawrence the third highest-paid defensive tackle in the NFL.

It comes after Lawrence had elected to stay away from the start of the voluntary portion of the Giants’ offseason program because of a contract disagreement, a source told ESPN in April. He had remained in contact with the team and coach Brian Daboll as he dealt with his contract situation.

Lawrence, 25, was on the fifth-year option of his rookie contract. He’s coming off a breakout season in which he recorded a career-best 7.5 sacks.

Lawrence was the 17th overall pick in the 2019 draft. The Clemson product has played in 64 games over his first four seasons, missing only two games.

The 6-foot-4, 342-pound lineman has recorded 16.5 sacks, 116 tackles and four forced fumbles in his career.

ESPN’s Jordan Raanan contributed to this report.
