Cleveland wasted no time spending some of the savings recouped by releasing wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., signing Teller to a $56.8 million deal over four years, with $28 million guaranteed, per Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer.
Teller is now the NFL's highest-paid right guard on a multi-year deal, surpassing the Philadelphia Eagles‘ Brandon Brooks. He slots in second among all guards, behind only the Kansas City Chiefs‘ Joe Thuney, who signed a deal for $16 million per year last offseason.
Teller was 16th on PFF's initial top 50 free agents list — ranking behind only the Washington Football Team‘s Brandon Scherff among guards. The Browns acquired Teller in 2019 — in addition to a 2021 seventh-round pick — from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for fifth- and sixth-round picks in 2020.

Since 2020, Teller's 93.2 overall grade and 93.9 run-blocking grade rank second among guards, behind only Dallas Cowboys All-Pro Zack Martin. The Browns and head coach Kevin Stefanski love to run their wide-zone rushing attack behind Teller, with their 5.3 yards per attempt running behind the right guard being the top mark in the NFL since 2020.
Quarterback Baker Mayfield and cornerback Denzel Ward are next in line for big contract extensions from general manager Andrew Berry, with both players coming off their highest-graded games of the season in Week 9.
