The Lions exercised their option on center Frank Ragnow‘s contract for the 2022 season ahead of the May 3 deadline to do so  and now they’ve moved to make sure Ragnow will be around well beyond that point.

According to multiple reports, Ragnow has agreed to a four-year extension with the team. That ties him to the Lions through the 2026 season and pushes him to the top of the list of best-paid centers in the game.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the extension has an average annual salary of $13.5 million. He’s set to make over $2 million this year and $12.657 million next season.

Ragnow, who made the Pro Bowl last season, has started 45 games since coming to the Lions and Thursday’s news sets him up to add a lot of games to that total before his time in Detroit is up.

  1. Holmes continues to make good moves. Ragnow is a stud. Decker is locked up, now Ragnow. Sewell is a rookie and Johnson drafted last year. The Lions O line is young, talented, and should be together for a long time.

  2. Very happy for him, great player, great person. The Detroit line is in great hands.

  3. Can someone tell us the cap impact? Did they save cap for this year while all sorts of solid vets are being released.. expect the lions to sign a safety next

  4. Excellent move, secure an O line when you let Stafford go to LA for Goff (instantly the worst QB in the division and bottom 5 in league.)

    Typical Lions are just Lioning……

  5. @Raidersnation be lives if you think goff is the stater here ur just as dum as the comment u left! Lions are securing the trenches then get PRETTY positions tooken care of

    His cap hit this year is only 3.75 million. They have plenty of cap space to sign 1 or 2 more quality guys if they want but its not a big necessity either. No one even them don’t believe they will be contenders this year. Hopefully they can roll over a good amount over to next year.

  7. I know most people prob don’t pay attention to centers on teams they don’t follow so most people don’t realize how good ragnow is.

    He’s not juat good, he’s one of the top few centers in the nfl
