The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to a new contract with Joe Burrow, making him the highest-paid player in the NFL.
The Cincinnati Bengals can make long-term plans with their quarterback. According to consistent US media reports, Joe Borough has agreed with the team to a five-year, $275 million contract extension. The contract includes a $219.01 million surety.
The working relationship includes an average salary of $55 million annually, making Boro the highest-paid player in NFL history. The franchise and players have been negotiating the contract for months.
Speaking to reporters Wednesday for the first time since suffering a right calf strain in late July, Boro reiterated his desire to spend his long-term future with the Bengals. “This is where I want to be,” Burrow said.
“This is where I want to be for my entire career. We’re working to get there. I’ve seen what the front office has done and what Zack is doing.”[تايلور، المدرب الرئيسي، محرر]At the moment here. I’m a small part of it. And I’m glad to be a part of it.”
Burrow’s deal was finalized after other top NFL quarterbacks received new contracts. In late July, Los Angeles Chargers outfielder Justin Herbert signed a five-year contract averaging $52.5 million per year.

Jalen Hurts from the Philadelphia Eagles and Lamar Jackson from the Baltimore Ravens also signed lucrative extensions that briefly made them the highest paid players.
In 2019, the Bengals were the worst team in the NFL, and finished the season with two wins. It was the most successful performance in franchise history, but it enabled her to draft Burrow, who led LSU to the collegiate national championship and won the Heisman Trophy.
