Brandon Scheff’s contract details

For the second consecutive season, Brandon Scherff has played under the franchise tag as the two sides have been unable to work out a long-term deal. Under the tag, Scherff earned a base salary of $18.036 million in 2021, the most of any guard in the NFL.

Scherff will be an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year in March unless the right guard agrees to a long-term deal with Washington beforehand. Scherff stated during locker room cleanout that he wanted to play his entire career in Washington. But one day later, general manager Martin Mayhew said Scherff rejected a contract from Washington last year that would have made him the highest-paid guard in NFL history. 

In seven seasons, Scherff has earned $66.8 million, per Spotrac.
