Chargers fans can finally rest easy. Star quarterback, Justin Herbert has signed a new contract extension, the eve before 2023 Training Camp kicks off.
There was chatter that both Herbert and Joe Burrow were in a bit of a holding pattern, waiting for the other QB to sign in hopes of out-earning the other. Well, Justin Herbert clearly wanted to put the contract talk in the rear-view window and only focus on football heading into camp.
It will be a 5-Year, $262.5 Million contract extension.
Big-Time Money For Justin Herbert
The deal is good for an average of $52.5 million per season, which gives him the highest current average salary per year edging out Lamar Jackson by $500,000, and ties Herbert to the Chargers until 2029.
The 5-Year extension will include $133.7 million fully guaranteed, $193.7 million with an injury guarantee, and can potentially spring to $218.7 million guaranteed.
Per Adam Schefter, the contract also contains a no-trade clause.
