Lane Johnson talks return from torn adductor, new contract with Eagles being his last


Lane Johnson is the best right tackle in the NFL, but he knows the end is near, and as the All-Pro prepares for another season, he’s focused on being the best version of himself.

Johnson is cleared for organized team activities after a 10-12 week rehab for a torn adductor muscle that cost him two regular-season games.

One of the NFL’s toughest players, Johnson played injured throughout the postseason, barely giving up quarterback pressure while helping Philadelphia reach the Super Bowl.

On Tuesday, Johnson talked about the rehab from injury and this last contract extension being his last.

The Eagles agreed to a one-year, $33 million contract extension with the All-Pro right tackle back in March.

The move created $10 million in cap space while keeping Johnson under contract through the 2026 NFL season.

Johnson was on the Eagles’ books for $47.305 million over the next three years. Gets one year, and $33.445 million added to that. So now under contract for four years, $80.75 million with $30 million guaranteed.


He’ll likely retire when this contract is all said and done.

Just an awesome football player. Would love to see him play at least 3 more years.

Hopefully he’s fully over his non-football struggles. That crap can wreck a person.

He said during last season that he wanted to play "maybe 2 more seasons".  So, that would be the '23 and '24 seasons.  Even though his contract runs through '26, it's highly unlikely he plays out his contract.  Lane is the best, but he's getting older and durability is definitely a concern.  Hope he holds up!
