According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is expected to get a big-time contract extension from the Cincinnati Bengals this offseason.

quote:

Sources say the Bengals are targeting this offseason for a Burrow mega-contract extension, as their standout has finished the third year of his rookie contract. Burrow made roughly $3.9 million in cash year this year, per Spotrac, and he has one year remaining on his rookie deal in addition to a fifth-year option Cincinnati can pick up this offseason.

An extension will be expensive, with Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray's $46.1 million per year average serving as the floor for negotiations. Helping pay for a portion of Burrow's eventual payday is what fans have taken to calling PayJoe Stadium.

Prior to the 2022 regular season, the Bengals sold the naming rights to Paul Brown Stadium for the first time ever. It's now Paycor Stadium, which brings in a figure that the Cincinnati Business Courier estimated at $8-9 million per year.


In three seasons in the NFL, Burrow has won five playoff games and led the Bengals to the Super Bowl in his second year in the league.

A win on Sunday vs. the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship would send Cincinnati back to the Super Bowl for a second consecutive year.

Gotta think it's forever and will average 60 but tons of lawyers already working on the cap hit with any and all options including part ownership considered.

I am almost as excited with the Bengals in the post-season as I would be if the Saints were there.

Lamar Jackson decided not to play in the playoffs because he didn't want to risk injury for his extension. I'm glad Burrow is LSUs own instead of that Louisville reject

He won't last long in the NFL getting sacked 40-50 times a year, and getting hit twice those numbers. Cincy HAS to invest in their online. And for Christ's sakes, proofread your posts at least a little.

Remember when Stafford made $60 million in his rookie contract and we thought that was a lot… Joe is about to make that annually!!! Deserves every penny….

If he wins this year he needs to get out of Cincinnati. They are notoriously cheap and no guarantee they field a team around him for more runs. They may go cheap with everyone else and use his like a ticket printing machine.

See Barry Sanders in Detroit.

Funny because they were aggressive in free agency.

If they win point still stands. Cincinnati will ride a superbowl victory for the next 20 years and not spend shite to help Joe... relegating him to Sanders status. The only thing worth watching on a shite team to sell tickets without a want to get ahead.
