The Washington Football Team has agreed to terms with left tackle Charles Leno on a three-year, $37.5 million extension, NFL Media reports.

Leno signed a one-year deal worth $5 million in the offseason after the Bears cut him. He has started every game this season and has made 109 starts in a row.

The Bears, who made Leno a seventh-round choice 2014, released him after they selected Teven Jenkins in the second round of the draft.

Leno signed a four-year, $37 million extension with the Bears in 2017.

  1. As a left tackle, to play one of the hardest positions in the NFL both mentally and physically… He made 109 consecutive starts on non-playoff caliber teams.

    Congratulations, well deserved.

  2. And here is your sign of a terrible franchise. The Bears cut him. After they, a horribly run team, bid against themselves.

  3. This is one of those brilliant moves by Ryan Pace, and draft Jenkins who needed back surgery ! How do you fire Nagy but keep that guy ???

  4. Good luck Charles and WFT. Leno was questionable with the Bears, I guess we shall see over the next 4 years.

  5. This year’s Charles Leno will not be the same as next year’s. He got his contract and will quit working hard.

  6. This is a good move by Washington. Leno has been very solid this season and they have no alternatives on the current roster. Signing Scherff would also be helpful. They didn’t win a game without him this year.

  7. He has been very good in the run game and picked it up after a slow start in pass protection. Hopefully he’s got a few years left in the tank
