Allen Contract


Recommended Posts

Allen is now, I believe, the 11th highest paid QB in the NFL and behind the likes of Kirk Cousins, Lawrence and Jalen Hurts.  He is $12 million below market.  Great job by Beane stepping up when he did.  That $12 million nets us at least two starters.  

 

Interested in thoughts on when we should we extend Allen.  Seems there is no time like the present!

He's been getting a ton of cash every year, though. They are taking care of him. They'll rework his contract in the next couple of years, probably.

The Hurts contract is interesting.

 

The next three seasons these are his cap hit rankings for the QB position:

2024- 16th $13M

2025- 18th $21M

2026- 15th $31M

 

And then..

 

2027- 9th $41M

2028- 4th $47M

2029- 1st $97M

2030* -29 $27M 

 

*Only three QB's under contract for 2030 season but got to figure $27M will be cheap. 

 

Eagles are basically all in to win these next three seasons with Hurts. Even AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith don't make outrageous money until after 2027.

 

The weird thing is the Joe Burrow contact has no cap relief at all. It's basically consistently high in cap hit for the next six seasons from 2024 to 2029.

I think Beane needs to extend him any chance they get, to keep him from getting to the end of his contract.  Every 2 to 3 years.

I'd say they have 3 years to get rid of him if he sucks in any way shape or form. No way he sees 2029 and that 97m

The cap hits in future years get adjusted all the time.  You think he will have a 97M cap hit in 29?  That is just what it says on paper, same wth 2030, it will be north of 27M.   He will get a redone deal probably after this year.  Unless he wants to just "be nice" he deserves to have an AAV approaching 60M, it will happen in due time.

He’ll be way over $60M.
