Could have a longer term deal by training camp?
Or would injury history prevent that?

We would save a considerable amount of money locking him up now instead of waiting. My guess is he would fall between Dallas Goedert and Hunter Henry. Something like a 4 year 54 mil extension.

I think he deserves an extension
Obviously you want game changers in R1
But if every first rounder at least was good enough for one contract extension, you will eventually be a good team
