Joe Burrow answers contract extension questions
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Joe Burrow continues to be a man of few words when asked about contract extension talks between him and the Cincinnati Bengals.
It is no surprise given Justin Herbert’s record-breaking contract extension announcement a day earlier, that Burrow was asked about his negotiations.
“It gets done when it gets done,” Burrow said of a possible timeline to get a contract extension signed.
Burrow has been tight-lipped throughout the offseason regarding contract talks.
The Bengals’ star quarterback explained that in his opinion, it is best to not play out contract negotiations publicly.
“I think that’s the best way to do business,” Burrow said to the reporter-filled room.
On Tuesday, Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers agreed on a five-year, $262.5 million extension that makes him the highest-paid quarterback in NFL history based on average annual salary ($52.5 million), according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The quarterback contract dominos have toppled this offseason with stars Jalen Hurts, Lamar Jackson and now Herbert all inking new deals with their teams.
Now, the lone domino left standing is Burrow’s contract.
Spotrac, a website that specializes in sports contracts and data, calculates Burrow’s average annual salary would be $53.7 million based on the current market.
