Bengals make Joe Burrow highest-paid player in NFL history with massive five-year extension: reports

The Cincinnati Bengals have reportedly made their franchise quarterback, Joe Burrow, the highest-paid player in NFL history with a massive five-year extension prior to the 2023 NFL season. 

The record deal is worth a whopping $275 million over the five years, with $219.5 million guaranteed, according to multiple reports. 

That comes out to a $55 million average per season once the extension begins. 

Burrow has been dealing with a calf strain in training camp, but the Bengals couldn’t be any more confident in their first overall pick from the 2020 NFL Draft

In his first three seasons, Burrow has thrown for 11,774 yards, 82 touchdown and 31 interceptions, completing 68.2% of his passes with his first Pro Bowl selection last season.
