A.J. Brown on Jalen Hurts’ new contract: It didn’t change him, It motivated him
After agreeing to a massive five-year, $255 million contract extension, Jalen Hurts has attained generational wealth.
Among the richest deals in NFL history, the contract includes just over $110 million in fully guaranteed money at the point of signing, and $179 million is guaranteed in the event of injury.
During his media session on Wednesday, All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Brown talked about Hurts and how the new deal will only motivate him.
