NFL rumours: Joe Burrow and Justin Herbert set to reset QB market in 2023 offseason

As more and more money is pumped into the NFL machine, player contracts will continue to get bigger and bigger, especially for star quarterbacks.

Joe Burrow is the next to sign his name on the dotted line, and the Cincinnati Bengals will offer him a juggernaut of a deal.

ESPN NFL’s Latest Insider Jeremy Fowler NFL executive poll includes an excerpt regarding potential expansions for Burrow and Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert. According to Fowler, the $50 million per year mark is where the two passers-by should hit.

“The expectation is that both players will sign new agreements that go beyond [Aaron] Rodgers’ league-high average is $50.3 million a year.

If I could whistle, I would. But just like the report of Cincinnati plans to expand Burrow this year, this is not surprising at all. That’s how the league works.

Burrow and Herbert are two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, and they also happen to be two of the youngest in the position. They are the ones who reset the market when the time comes, and it is happening now.

The structure of Burrow’s deal will be the real issue, not the average annual value. Will the Bengals pump massive roster bonuses as the Kansas City Chiefs done with Patrick Mahomes’ 10-year contract two years ago, or will it look like massive upfront guarantees unlike any Bengals contract we’ve seen before?

That’s for the front desk and Burrow’s agent to find out, and for us to find out.
