The Baltimore Ravens are putting their money where their mouth is and paying Mark Andrews like one of the best tight ends in football.

Andrews agreed to a lucrative contract extension on Monday evening. The deal spans four years and is worth $56 million, per NFL insider Ian Rapoport. He’s now one of the top paid tight ends in the sport.

The talented tight end has been a legitimate threat in the Ravens’ passing game ever since he joined the team back in 2018. In three years in Baltimore, Andrews has 156 catches for 2,105 yards and 20 touchdowns. He seems to be getting better and better each season.

The Ravens are paying Andrews handsomely for his contributions with the hope he can continue to perform at a high level in the coming years.

Mark Andrews now trails only George Kittle and Travis Kelce in average salary per season among tight ends.

“Mark Andrews is now the NFL’s third-highest paid tight end at $14M per season,” wrote ESPN’s Jamison Hensley via Twitter. “He trails George Kittle ($15M) and Travis Kelce ($14.3M).”

Let’s take a look at how the rest of the NFL world reacted to Thursday night’s Andrews-Ravens news.

It sounds like Mark Andrews’ deal is a win-win for both sides. He doesn’t have to worry about his future and the Ravens have locked in one of their top offensive players for the next few seasons.

Andrews and the Ravens begin the 2021 season on Monday, Sept. 13 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
