There was a contract extension signed yesterday, just not the one that Redskins fans were expecting.

Matt Ioannidis signed a 3-year contract extension yesterday with a base value of $21.75 million with another $3 million in incentives, and $14 million guaranteed.  This was first reported by NFL Networks Mike Garafolo.

This extension comes at a time when the Redskins are starting a youth movement on the defensive side of the ball.  As a part of the “DC Gridlock, ” Ioannidis tallied a career high in tackles (31) and sacks (7.5) in 2018.  He will look to repeat and build on his success in 2019 with his defensive linemates returning.

Ioannidis was a fifth round pick in the 2016 draft out of Temple University.
