Breer broke down Hurts’ five-year, $255 million extension. He gets $110 million fully guaranteed, $23.294 million to sign the contract, and his base salary grows yearly from 2023 to 2028. Hurts will make $51 million in 2027 and 2028. 

Breer highlights other numbers in Hurts’ contract, but the theme is how the Eagles are showing faith in its former second-round selection of the 2020 NFL Draft. Hurts showed he could take the franchise to the Super Bowl and nearly won a championship.

He is hungry for the future, and Eagles fans are excited about it.
