The Philadelphia Eagles are doubling down on their commitment to quarterback Jalen Hurts, making NFL history in the process.

If you've been waiting to invest in a Jalen Hurts jersey, I think you're safe to get one now, because the Eagles just re-invested in Hurts BIG TIME.

According to ESPN, the Eagles and Hurts have reached agreement on a $255 million contract extension that will keep NFC championship winning QB around for another five years.

In inking that extension, Jalen Hurts is now officially the NFL's highest paid professional football player EVER. Even better, Hurts extension reportedly includes the Philadelphia Eagles inaugural 'no-trade clause'.

If he wasn't already, Jalen's gonna be rolling in the dough as this new contract guarantees him $179.3 million.

Before Hurts made history with this extension, the $230M deal Deshaun Watson signed with the Cleveland Browns was the most lucrative in NFL history.
