Even with one game to play in the season, the Washington soccer team has dealt with one of its biggest items on the club’s to-do list during the offseason. According to Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Washington has hired left tackle Charles Leno for a three-year, $ 37.5 million extension. The 30-year-old was set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Throughout the 2021 season, Leno has proven to be a solid addition along the offensive line, especially in pass blocking sets. He started in all 16 Washington games going into Week 18 and is currently the third-highest rated pass blocking tackle in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus. In 655 pass-blocking snaps, Leno allowed just six sacks and seven quarterback hits as well as 23 rushes.

The Boise State product initially entered the league as the Bears’ seventh-round draft pick and had become a solid tackle along the O-line and was a pro Bowler in 2018. He was released by the Bears in beginning of May of last year. and only lasted a few weeks in the market before Washington hired him for a year, which turned out to be one of the best offseason additions for the club.

This isn’t the first time Leno has cashed in a big deal, either, as he had already signed a $ 38 million deal with Chicago in 2017.
