Laremy Tunsil Contract & Salary Breakdown

Last Updated: July 1, 2023
The Houston Texans locked in their stud left tackle with a new extension this offseason. Boardroom breaks down his contract.

Offensive tackle is one of the most important positions in football. And with the Houston Texans in a prime position to select a quarterback in the upcoming NFL Draft, securing that position is critical.

In 2019, the Texans traded for Laremy Tunsil. In the four seasons he’s been there, he has been selected to the Pro Bowl in three of them, including this past season. This led the team to sign him to a record-setting deal, inking Tunsil to a three-year extension worth $75 million with two-thirds of that guaranteed at signing. This deal keeps Tunsil under contract until after the 2026 season.

Boardroom takes a look at the details of this little piece of NFL history.
