Joe Burrow is expected to become the highest-paid player in NFL history once he gets a contract extension done this summer.

Before the offseason, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor pushed for the team, which has a history of not wanting to play their players, to extend Burrow no matter the cost.

While speaking to the media at the NFL combine, Bengals director of personnel Duke Tobin gave an update on current contract extension negotiations with Burrow.

“It’s not done yet,” Tobin said. “You know, it’s a good problem to have. I have been pretty vocal about what Joe means to us, and my job is to facilitate his success as best I can with putting pieces around him, and his contract will get done when it gets done. But it’s a good problem to have. He’s a vital part of what we’re doing.”

During a recent appearance on the You Pod to Win the Game podcast, Yahoo Sports’ NFL insider Charles Robinson revealed that the expectation around the league is that the Bengals will extend Burrow this offseason and make him the highest-paid player in the league.

“I have a chance to talk to people now, they’re already saying Burrow is going to get 55., Joe Burrow is going to get $55 million, he might get $60 (million) by the time this all ends up.”

It is worth noting that Aarond Rodgers is currently the highest-paid player in the NFL based on yearly salary.
