Dion Dawkins

Avg. Annual Salary: $14,575,000

Rank among left tackles: 14th

A month prior to Tre’Davious White’s extension, the Buffalo Bills were able to agree to a long-term deal with their starting left tackle Dion Dawkins. He was entering the final year of his rookie deal at the time and agreed to a four-year extension worth $58.3 million.

The left tackle is one of the most important positions on the roster as it protects the blindside of the quarterback. Over the years, Dawkins was a steady presence at the position after taking over for Cordy Glenn as a rookie in 2017.

Since that season, Dawkins has only missed one game over the past four years.

This past season was arguably one of his best as he was named to the Pro Bowl for the first time. Dawkins’ current deal runs through the 2024 season but he is a player who could be in line for a new deal after this season or after 2023.

When that time comes, he likely will receive a bigger contract but for now, this is one of the best contracts for the Buffalo Bills.
