It’s being reported that the Eagles QB has signed a five-year extension with the team. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the five-year deal is for $255 million. The deal makes Hurts the highest-paid player in NFL history. Also, Hurts’ latest contract includes $179.304 million in guaranteed money. The Eagles have now locked up their franchise QB and paid him handsomely in the process.
Hurts had a monster in 2022, leading the Eagles to the one seed in the NFC. Unfortunately for Hurts, the Eagles ran into the Kansas City Chiefs in the biggest game of the year. If anyone had a better season than Hurts, it would be Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes. However, the Eagles have plenty to be happy about from the 2022 season. Hurts finished the 2022 regular season with over 3,700 yards passing and 22 touchdown passes. However, his ability to keep a play alive may be his strongest asset.
