Jaguars give Trevor Lawrence massive extension: Where QB stacks up among richest contracts in NFL history

Lamar Jackson was the highest-paid player in the NFL — for three months. And then it was Chargers star Justin Herbert, who held the honor for even less time. Joe Burrow held the title since September after a monster five-year extension with the Bengals worth $275 million and includes $219.01 million guaranteed. That made him the highest-paid player in league history. Trevor Lawrence joined Burrow after signing a five-year, $275 million contract on Thursday with the Jacksonville Jaguars that included $200 million in guaranteed money. 

With this long-awaited deal now agreed upon, there’s a new hierarchy of highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL as we begin the 2023 regular season. Here’s a look at the top contracts in the NFL and where Lawrence stacks up.
