Lamar Jackson should probably get Nicole Lynn on the phone as she’s secured the biggest bag in NFL history for her client, Jalen Hurts.
Hurts’ week has gotten off to a remarkable start, with the quarterback having agreed to a five-year contract worth $255 million with the Philadelphia Eagles. Of course, it’s easier to land a record-breaking deal after playing out the season Hurts just had. But that by no means discounts the role the Klutch Sports agent played.
Hurts’ deal is a lot more than the one Deshaun Watson got with the Cleveland Browns last year, though the latter’s $230 million is fully guaranteed while Hurts has gotten $179 million guaranteed.
Lynn is getting hailed on social media after the work that has led to a second-round pick becoming the highest-paid player in NFL history.

The 24-year-old, who has also landed the first no-trade clause in Eagles history, showed remarkable improvement in 2022, going from 19th to fourth in QBR (54.6 – 66.4) and upping his completion percentage from 61.3 to 66.5.
