After signing a massive five-year agreement with the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, Jalen Hurts became the NFL's highest-paid athlete.
After Hurts' breakout season, the Eagles extended him for five years at $255 million (£182 million). Hurts led the Eagles to the No.1 seed in the NFC last season, but the Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes came back to deny him his first Super Bowl win.
Hurts scored three Super Bowl running touchdowns, and the Eagles want to extend his contract this offseason. The 24-year-old, a 2020 second-round draft pick, has been rewarded for his remarkable NFL ascension.
After becoming one of the NFL's brightest young stars, Hurts is the Eagles' future. Hurts, one of the best young players, was unlucky not to win a Super Bowl last season.
Hurts and the Eagles are expected to compete for a while. They extended his contract quickly, and the amount shows their confidence in the 24-year-old.
He surpasses Aaron Rodgers as the highest-paid quarterback with $179.3m (£145m) guaranteed. The contract puts pressure on the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Chargers to extend Justin Herbert and Joe Burrow.
