Savage, whose new deal was announced Friday, has spent the last three seasons overhauling the Browns roster through draft-day trades and free agent acquisitions. He was hired in 2005 to rebuild a team that had made the playoffs only once since returning to the NFL in 1999.
Although they missed the playoffs last season, the Browns finished 10-6 and had one of the NFL's top offenses. They had been 10-22 in their first two seasons under Savage and coach Romeo Crennel.
Crennel already has received a two-year extension through the 2011 season.
