Joe Burrow Inks Historic Five-Year, $275 Million Extension with Cincinnati Bengals

In a momentous announcement on the eve of the NFL’s 2023 season kickoff, Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals have reached a groundbreaking agreement. The star quarterback, Joe Burrow, is set to enter the season as the NFL’s highest-paid player in history on an annual basis, thanks to a lucrative five-year, $275 million contract extension.

Breaking the news, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport has revealed that this historic deal marks the fourth instance this year where a quarterback has ascended to the title of the NFL’s highest-paid player. Joe Burrow, at just 26 years old, has surpassed the previous record holder, Justin Herbert, whose contract had outshone those of Lamar Jackson and Jalen Hurts.

One notable aspect of this extension is the elimination of the need for Joe Burrow to play under the fifth-year option in 2024. This decision speaks volumes about the Bengals’ commitment to Burrow, who has unquestionably left an indelible mark on the franchise.

Since his selection as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Joe Burrow has rapidly climbed the ranks of elite quarterbacks. Over his three seasons of play, he has amassed an impressive 11,774 passing yards, 82 touchdowns, and a mere 31 interceptions. Most notably, he has propelled the Bengals to consecutive AFC Championship Game appearances, a feat previously unheard of in Cincinnati’s football history.

The Bengals’ Super Bowl run in 2021, though ending in heartbreak, marked a significant milestone, being their first appearance in the championship game since 1988 and their first venture out of the Wild Card Round since 1990. Joe Burrow’s impact on the team has been nothing short of transformative.

With this monumental contract extension in place, the Bengals are placing their trust in Joe Burrow to continue leading the team to success in the years to come. Despite facing challenges associated with rising contract costs, Cincinnati remains a formidable contender, thanks to the extraordinary talents of Joe Burrow.

Despite Burrow’s limited participation in training camp due to a calf strain, the Bengals remain laser-focused on their mission. In 2022, they overcame a sluggish start to conclude the regular season with a remarkable 12-2 run, culminating in an AFC Championship Game appearance. This year, their sights are set on securing homefield advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.
