After a few months of negotiations, the Philadelphia Eagles and Jalen Hurts have agreed to a contract extension that makes the QB the highest paid player in NFL history, the first Eagles’ player to get a no-trade clause, and keeps him in Philly through 2028.

It was no secret this offseason that re-signing Hurts was a priority for everyone in the organization from CEO Jeffrey Lurie to GM Howie Roseman, and obviously head coach Nick Sirianni. The three talking heads complimented Hurts every chance they had in the months since the Super Bowl, and they all knew it was going to take a lot of money to keep Hurts here and happy.

It should be no surprise that his teammates agree that the HUGE contract is well-deserved, with Lane Johnson and A.J. Brown joking about him spreading the love.

Analysts around the league also reacted to Hurts now being the highest paid player in NFL history, with most pointing to his success in 2022 as clearly deserving of the price tag.

Non-Eagles players from around the league and former teammates were also quick to give Hurts his flowers, with a lot of celebrations for the Philly QB.
