Ravens' Broderick Washington signs 3-year contract extension

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens gained long-term stability to their defensive front Wednesday, signing defensive end Broderick Washington to a three-year contract extension.

The Ravens did not disclose financial terms, but a source told ESPN that the deal is worth $15.75 million and could reach $16.5 million with incentives.

Washington, 26, was entering the final year of his rookie contract. Before this agreement with Washington, the only Ravens defensive lineman signed beyond this season was backup nose tackle Travis Jones.

Washington has gone from being a fifth-round pick out of Texas Tech in 2020 to a starting defensive end. He replaces Calais Campbell, who signed with the Atlanta Falcons this offseason.

Known for his run-stopping, Washington is coming of a season in which he recorded a career-high 49 tackles.
