Lawrence’s deal includes $142 million guaranteed. He became the sixth QB making more than $50 million a year, joining Burrow, Jared Goff, Justin Herbert, Lamar Jackson and Jalen Hurts. Lawrence is the 14th to top $40 million annually, and he’s the youngest on the list.

Lawrence has already added his name to the Jacksonville Jaguars‘ history books. He is fourth on the franchise’s all-time passing yards list. His 58 career touchdown passes rank fourth in franchise history.

Lawrence finished the past two NFL seasons with more than 4,000 passing yards; he and the Jags won the AFC South in 2022 and were in terrific shape to repeat, but a second half collapse saw them miss the playoffs.

Last season, he threw for 4,016 yards with 21 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He also ran for four scores, lost seven fumbles and was sacked a career-high 35 times.

The 24-year-old is 21-31 as a starter in three seasons, including 1-1 in the playoffs, and he has a whopping 60 turnovers in three seasons, which is a number he needs to trim to become the player the Jags believe he can be.
