10/9/2021 5:07:14 PM GMT + 00: 00 – The Buffalo Bills announced a three-year contract extension for big cornerback Taron Johnson on Saturday.

The financial terms for the deal were not disclosed, but NFL Network reports that it is worth $ 24 million with about $ 14 million guaranteed. The deal keeps the 25-year-old in Buffalo until the 2024 season.

Johnson missed out on Sunday’s 40-0 win in Houston with a groin injury, but was in full training for Buffalo (3-1) ahead of Sunday night’s game in Kansas City (2-2).

As a pick for the fourth round in 2018, Johnson has 15 tackles, a forced fumble, and a sack of three starts this season. He has 201 tackles, four sacks, four forced fumbles and two interceptions in 42 career games (23 starts).

Last season, Johnson returned an interception 51 yards for a touchdown in their 26-15 win over Pittsburgh in Week 14.
