Hurts signs 5 year 255 mil

Recommended Posts

The Eagles and their superstar quarterback agreed to terms Monday on a five-year, $255 million contract extension that makes him the highest-paid player in NFL history, per sources.

Hurts’ deal has $179.304 million in total guarantees, including $110 million fully guaranteed at signing and $126.5 million fully guaranteed by March 2024, as well as the first no-trade clause in Eagles history -- another sign of the franchise’s faith in Hurts, who is still only 24 years old.

The Eagles QB can earn an additional $15 million in incentives, giving him an opportunity to make as much as $274.304 million through 2028, including $4.304 million that he would’ve been due in the last year of his original rookie contract this season.

Hurts gets a raise in 2023, including a $23.294 million signing bonus, and will make $64 million through the first new year in 2024. The Eagles now have him under contract for the next six years, on a deal that preserves their flexibility to keep the team intact around him.

That's a big move by the Eagles.  Hurts was great last year, but it was one season.  Any regression and that contract is gonna hurt a lot.  He's a good kid though so rooting for him even though I have no love for the Eagles.

Also, it seems to lock in a new bar for guaranteed money.  It sounds like about 70% of it is guaranteed, which seems to line up fairly well with the Ravens offer to Lamar.  I wonder if this moves them along, or if he will continue to cling to the Watson parameters.

Devil's advocate here:

-Hurst 165 rushing attempts ( 16 games) in 2022

-Lamar Jackson 185 rushing attempts (projected 17 games) in 2022

That said, the body types are totally different.

Yea Hurts might be squatting more weight then anyone on the eagles

There's nothing about Lamar Jacksons contract strategy that's smart.

Without a doubt. Lamar Jackson is a freaking idiot for not having an agent negotiate for him. He's pissed away a lot of his potential earnings and he'll lose even more because he's a stubborn rockhead.

To his WR's or RB's and TE's? Because if I'm an NFL WR, the last QB I want to play with is Lamar Jackson. 

Well, when Hollywood was there, he had 1,000 yards. It's not like any other WR on his team has done sh*t in the league. Certainly not on the levels of Devonta or AJ.
