The NFL free agency frenzy continues
The Philadelphia Eagles and quarterback Jalen Hurts have agreed to a five-year extension through the 2028 season, the team announced Monday.
The record-setting contract extension is worth $255 million, giving Hearts the highest annual salary in league history — $51 million, according to CBS Sports.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, $179.304 million is guaranteed and the extension includes a no-trade clause. According to Rapoport, this is the first no-trade clause in Eagles history.
Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie spoke of Hart’s dedication to his craft at the NFL’s annual league meeting in Phoenix last month.
“I’m not telling you anything here that you don’t know, but watching him practically every day, he’s got an incredible passion to be extraordinary,” Lurie said. “You see it in the greats. We all know in other sports and with certain quarterbacks in this league, you can define them by their obsession with detail and work ethic.”
