  • Jalen Hurts was drafted in the second round in 2020
  • He signed a four-year contract worth $6 million
  • Hurts is eligible for an extension after this season.

In mid-July 2020, nearly two months after being selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Jalen Hurts signed his rookie contract, a four-year deal that would run through the 2023 season.

Jalen Hurts Contract

Jalen Hurts is in the third season of a four-year contract with a total value of approximately $6 million. His base salary for 2022-23 is $1,082,744, which ranks 47th among NFL quarterbacks.

Base Salary: $1,082,744

Cap Hit: $1,643,230

Workout Bonus: $75,000

Total Cash: $1,157,744

Hurts’ base salary will increase to $4,208,000 in 2023. And his cap hit will be $4,793,486 in the final season of his contract, after which he would become an unrestricted free agent, though that won’t happen.

Jalen Hurts Extension

Hurts is eligible for an extension after the third year of his rookie contract, i.e., after the Eagles play the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. And he’ll potentially sign a “monster” deal, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday:

According to Spotrac, Hurts’ market value is six years at approximately $266 million, an average salary of $44.3 million that would currently rank sixth among quarterbacks.

That deal would put him in the same ballpark as Kyler Murray, Deshaun Watson, Josh Allen, and Dak Prescott, all of whom signed deals between four and six years that include an average annual salary between $40 and $47 million.

Hurts will be the first quarterback who finished his college football career at Oklahoma to start in the Super Bowl. The only previous former Sooners’ quarterback to start in the Super Bowl is Troy Aikman, though the the three-time Super Bowl starter finished his career at UCLA, not Oklahoma.
