BREAKING: Jaguars And Josh Allen Agree To 5-Year, $150 Million Contract Extension

The Jacksonville Jaguars and star pass-rusher Josh Allen agreed on a five-year, $150 million contract that includes $88 million guaranteed, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The two-time Pro Bowler had received the franchise tag from the Jaguars and was set to make $24 million in 2024 if he played on that tender.

The Jaguars in March put the franchise tag on Allen, 26, who is coming off the best season of his career with a franchise-record 17.5 sacks, tied for second in the NFL last season.

The Jaguars selected Allen with the 7th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. He had 10.5 sacks as a rookie but a knee injury limited him to eight games in 2020 and he had 7.5 sacks in 2021 and 7.0 in 2022.

Allen is just the third of the Jaguars’ 14 first-round draft picks from 2008 to 2020 to sign an extension with the team, joining defensive tackle Tyson Alualu (2010) and quarterback Blake Bortles (2014).
