Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Browns have come to terms on a three-year deal with center JC Tretter, a deal that will pay him $32.5 million with over $23 million in guaranteed money.
Tretter has been a staple at the center spot the last two years for the Browns, not missing a game since he arrived with the team.

He was a fourth-round pick by the Packers in 2013, and inked with the Browns as a free agent in 2017.
The 28-year-old was due to become a free agent at the end of the season, so it’s a good and aggressive move by the Browns to get him under contract now and not to have to fight other teams for his services after the season.
While there’s been plenty of criticism on the offensive line this season, Tretter is playing well and rarely do you hear his name mentioned, which is a good thing being a linemen.
