Denzel Ward has reached a deal for a record-breaking $100.5 million contract extension with the Cleveland Browns, according to a report on ESPN. That makes him the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history. Ward just finished his fourth season with the Browns.

Defensive end Stephen Weatherly signed with the Cleveland Browns and defensive tackle Sheldon Day re-signed with them, the team has announced. Both players became unrestricted free agents a month ago.


Commanders Denying Allegation

The Washington Commanders are flatly denying an allegation that they pocketed $5 million in security deposits from season ticket holders instead of returning it.

Worse yet, the money wasn’t shared with the NFL under its revenue-sharing agreement. A whistle-blower made the allegations to a Congressional committee, which reported the matter to the Federal Trade Commission.
