Jedrick Wills Jr. gets fifth-year option exercised
According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, the Cleveland Browns are accepting the fifth-year option on Jedrick Wills Jr.’s contract.
Wills has been a rock for Cleveland, playing at least 90% of the team’s offensive snaps in all three seasons in the league. In 2022, he was second on the team in snaps played, pacing just 20 snaps behind G Joel Bitonio with 1,154. While he has had some struggles with penalties, Wills has helped the Browns become one of the strongest rushing attacks in the NFL, and now the former No. 10 pick will make $14.175 million guaranteed in 2024.
