As the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Trevor Lawrence will have the highest deal among rookies in the league.
Lawrence, who was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars No. 1 as expected, has already signed endorsement deals with major companies like Gatorade, Adidas, Bose and Blockfolio.
Many have wondered how much Lawrence will make off his rookie deal considering the contract is based off a slotted system by the NFL.
Those questions were answered this week when ESPN’s Field Yates reported that the value for Lawrence’s contract had been set and that he would make more than what Joe Burrow did last season on his deal.
According to Jags wire, Lawrence’s signing bonus will be prorated over four years in increments of $6,029,744.
“When breaking down Lawrence’s signing bonus, it will be prorated over his four year deal in increments of $6,029,744. Per Over the Cap, he’s projected to have base salary amounts of $660,000, $2,332,436, $4,004,872, $5,677,308, respectively, over the course of his four-year contract that has a fifth-year option,” Jags wire reports.
Lawrence has been looked at as the next big thing at QB since his first season at Clemson. Now, he’ll get his chance to prove it.
