Browns make big move after parting ways with Odell Beckham Jr.
The Cleveland Browns have secured the services of one of their best assets in guard Wyatt Teller beyond the 2021 NFL season. The 26-year-old Teller has come to terms with the Browns on a multi-year deal that’s set to keep him in Cleveland for the next four years, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo. This came shortly after the Browns parted ways with wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.:
The #Browns and G Wyatt Teller have reached agreement on a four-year contract extension, sources say. He was slated to be a free agent after the season. Now, he’s under contract through 2025 in Cleveland, where OL coach Bill Callahan has tapped into his potential.

More from Garofolo’s colleague, Tom Pelissero:
It’s a four-year, $56.8 million extension for the #Browns and Wyatt Teller, making him one of the NFL’s highest-paid guards.
Although the Browns have not been very good in pass protection this season, their run-blocking is superb, thanks in large part to Teller’s performance. It’s easy to attribute the Browns’ success on the ground to the pair of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, but Teller and the team’s offensive line is also playing a big part. The Browns are second in the NFL after nine weeks in rushing yards per game and No. 1 in rushing touchdowns per contest.
