Philadelphia Eagles, Lane Johnson Agree to Deal


Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson was the team’s first-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft and he has agreed to terms for his rookie contract on Saturday just in time for the start of the team’s training camp. It will be a four-year deal for Johnson that includes offset language.

“We’re very excited to have all of our draft picks ready to go for the start of training camp,” Eagles G.M. Howie Roseman said in a press release from the team. “I give Lane and his agent, Ken Sarnoff, a lot of credit for their work in getting this deal complete.  Both had stated to us how important it was to get this deal signed before the rookies report on Monday and they kept their word.  We’re all looking forward to watch Lane get his NFL career started.”

With the contract negotiations behind him, Johnson can now focus on preparing for the upcoming season where he will be a starter from day one.
