The Cleveland Browns have re-signed outside linebacker Jaime Collins to a four-year, $50 million contract extension through the 2020 season.

Collins has an average salary of $12.5 million per season. The deal has been in the works for the past few days; however, the deal was not officially announced until Monday night.

He’s guaranteed to make $26 million in his new deal.

“Jamie was great to have in our building this season, and we look forward to him being a Cleveland Brown for a number of years to come,” Browns Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown said.

Collins was in the final-year of his rookie deal when he was traded to the Browns on Halloween from the New England Patriots. In eight games following the trade, he had 48 tackles, 2.0 sacks and one forced fumble.

He will now be the fourth-highest paid linebacker in terms of annual base salary behind Von Miller, Justin Houston and Clay Matthews.
