Lions center Frank Ragnow has signed a four-year contract extension with Detroit. He already has two years left on his current deal, meaning Ragnow will stay a Lion until 2026.
The NFL’s Tom Pelissero reported the news via Twitter on Thursday morning.
#Lions center Frank Ragnow’s four-year extension is worth $13.5 million per year, per source. Huge money for Ragnow, one of Detroit’s centerpiece players who’s now under contract for just under $70 million through 2026.

Ragnow is one of the most reliable centers in the league and has been one of Detroit’s best players since being drafted out of Arkansas in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. His new deal reflects his impact, making him the highest-paid center in the NFL.
He receives $25 million at signing, $42 million guaranteed overall and $13.5 more million per year on his new deal. This eclipses Corey Linsley’s new deal with the Chargers, making Ragnow the richest center, at $70 million through 2026.
