With being the starting quarterback for a Super Bowl team, win or lose, Philadelphia Eagles player, Jalen Hurts will be getting a contract extension after the season is officially over according to a report by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Hurts will be entering the last year of his rookie contract where is he scheduled to make $4 million. Since he wasn’t selected in the first round, his contract wasn’t for five years, so he is able to renegotiate based on the success he has garnered over the last two seasons with the Eagles.
During his segment on NFL GameDay this past Sunday morning, Rapoport stated, “He is eligible for an extension after the season, and my understanding is the Philadelphia Eagles and his agent, Nicole Lynn, are going to get together this offseason and see if they can work out what would no doubt be a big-time monster extension for Jalen Hurts. Just think about how far he has come. This time last year, we were wondering, ‘is he for sure the guy for the Eagles? Are they going to pursue any of the other big-name quarterbacks?’ Now an MVP candidate, who has led his team all the way to today, there is no doubt he is a massive part of the Eagles future.”

This season has been so great for Hurts, he has been named an MVP finalist. When the young quarterback started for the Eagles, the team had a 16-1 record. Hurts has thrown for 3,976 yards, made 24 touchdowns, and only tossed six interceptions. He also had 833 yards rushing the ball on the ground.
When the upcoming Super Bowl is played in Glendale, AZ, on February 12, for the first time in NFL history, the opposing quarterbacks – Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes and Hurts – will be Black.
