Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills currently have the best NFL odds to win the Super Bowl in 2022, but how does their quarterback’s contract stack up to those around the league?

Josh Allen’s Contract

Just over one year ago, Allen signed a lucrative extension with the Buffalo Bills, which will kick in after the 2022-23 season. The six-year contract will pay Allen $258 million, which includes $150 million guaranteed and an average salary of slightly more than $43 million per season.

It’s no secret how integral the quarterback position is in the NFL, and the Bills were able to lock theirs up at a relatively reasonable price in terms of market value. The deal should help keep the Bills in contender status over that time.

Allen is still on his rookie contract after being drafted by Buffalo seventh overall out of Wyoming in the 2018 NFL draft. The contract pays him just short of $21.5 million over four years, which equates to just under $5.5 million per season, though thanks to early cash from the six-year deal, Allen is one of the highest-paid NFL quarterbacks with $47 million in total cash for 2022.

That’s still well behind Matthew Stafford, whose total cash number of $61.5-million easily ranks first in the league.
