Eagles QB Jalen Hurts Agrees to Record-Breaking Contract Extension

If it wasn't clear already, the Philadelphia Eagles clearly believe in quarterback Jalen Hurts, proving it on Monday by giving him a monster contract extension that breaks the NFL record books.

Jalen Hurts, dinner is on you ... probably forever.

The Philadelphia Eagles star quarterback broke the bank on Monday, as he and the team agreed to a record-breaking five-year, $255 million contract extension that will keep in Philly through 2028, per multiple reports.

Headed into his fourth NFL season after being a second-round pick in 2020, Hurts is now the highest-paid player in NFL history.

Hurts' new deal comes with a ton attached. He'll receive $179.3 million guaranteed and gets a $23.294 million signing bonus. The deal also includes about $15 million in total incentives.

On top of that, Hurts' extension includes a no-trade clause, the first of its kind in Eagles franchise history.

So if it wasn't obvious already, the Eagles clearly believe in Hurts.

And why wouldn't they after the season he just had?

Before leading the Eagles to the Super Bowl, Hurts put together an MVP-like campaign during the regular season. On his shoulders, Philly started the year with a 8-0 record before finishing the season at 14-3, marking the most wins in a regular season in franchise history.

Along the way, Hurts proved to be one of the most unstoppable dual-threat quarterbacks in the league. While throwing for 3,701 yards, 22 touchdowns and just six interceptions, he also rushed 165 times for 760 yards and an impressive 13 touchdowns.

This kind of production - along with another Super Bowl appearance - will be expected from Hurts moving forward after Monday's colossal news.
