The Philadelphia Eagles have locked up their franchise quarterback Jalen Hurts to a five-year $255 million contract extension which includes a guaranteed $179 million.
Hurts also gets a very rare no-trade clause in his contract.

Hurts played college football at both the University of Alabama and the University of Oklahoma.

He led the Crimson Tide to two consecutive national championship games in his freshman and sophomore seasons but was replaced in the 2018 championship game by Tua Tagovailoa.
After graduating from Alabama, Hurts transferred to Oklahoma for his senior year in 2019. He had a successful season with the Sooners, throwing for 3,851 yards, 32 touchdowns, and eight interceptions, and rushing for 1,298 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Hurts was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, and he played in 15 games as a rookie, starting 10 of them. He threw for 1,061 yards, six touchdowns, and four interceptions, and he also rushed for 354 yards and three touchdowns.
