Browns Insider Shares Jedrick Wills Contract Prediction

The Browns will have a difficult decision to make, given the massive amount of money that will go along with the fifth-year option of their rookies taken in 2020

However, in the eyes of one Browns insider, the team is likely to pick up the option for an incredibly important position.

#Browns📷 LT Jedrick Wills Jr., picked 10th overall, in line to make $14.175 million for 2024. As @AlbertBreer notes, team has until the week after the draft to pick up that option. Organization is likely to do so. They don’t seem to be as down on Wills as some fans/media are

Under Wills and the offensive line, the Browns allowed 44 sacks in 2022, which was tied for 11th-most in the league. Browns fans might have a right to be concerned with Wills moving forward, given this amount of sacks.

However, this doesn’t account for the athletic prowess of Deshaun Watson, who is one of the most agile QBs in the NFL, when fully healthy.

If the Browns are going to take a step forward in 2023, they will need to do so with a healthy offensive line, and the improved play of Watson.

Will the Browns end up sticking with Willis, or will they look to free agency or the draft instead?
