Why Jalen Hurts Contract Reports Are Somewhat Misleading

Jalen Hurts was reported to be the highest paid player in NFL history, but ultimately that is in terms of average annual value ($51M) as opposed to guaranteed money (Deshaun Watson ranks 1st at $230M) and total value (Patrick Mahomes ranks 1st at $450M.)

Today on In The Zone, Mike Ginnitti of Spotrac.com discussed Jalen Hurts's contract in more detail, if this contract means anything for Lamar Jackson, which QB's are next to get paid, and Saquon Barkley's value. This can be heard in the podcast clip below.
