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. It was a four-year deal that would run through the 2023 season.

That deal was replaced by a five-year, $255-million deal that makes him the highest-paid player in NFL history.

Jalen Hurts Contract Extension

Hurts’ five-tear, $255-million contract includes $179.3 million in guarantees.

The average annual value of $51 million is the highest in NFL history. And Hurts sits behind only Kyler Murray and Deshaun Watson for most guaranteed money from one contract; Murray received $189.5 million and Watson received $230 million.

Hurts’ old deal had a base salary of $4,204,000 and cap hit of $4,789,486 for the 2023 season. If he didn’t re-sign with the Eagles, Hurts would’ve become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

His new cap hit for 2023 is $6.15 million:

2023: $6.15 million
2024: $13.56 million
2025: $21.77 million
2026: $31.77 million
