Josh Allen Signs Six-Year, $258 Million Extension With Bills

Josh Allen is officially a very, very, very rich man. The Bills starting quarterback got the bag and isn’t leaving Buffalo anytime soon. Allen and the Bills came together on a contract extension that will pay him $258 million over the next six years. Josh Allen got the bag!

Chris Mortenson first reported the news. Adam Schefter of ESPN later came in with the official details of the contract:

VIA Buffalo Bills:

“It was the most anticipated item on the Bills to-do list heading into the 2021 season, and it will have Bills fans even more excited for the upcoming campaign. Buffalo has agreed to terms with franchise quarterback Josh Allen to a six-year contract extension that runs through the 2028 season.

Allen, who just turned 25 this year, rewrote the Bills single-season record book in just about every passing category in his third NFL season in 2020. He broke single-season franchise records for touchdown passes (37), completions (396), completion percentage (69.2), 300-yard games (8), passing yards (4,544) and total touchdowns (46) as he finished runner-up to Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers for league MVP honors.”

Kudos to the Bills for getting this deal done. Allen surely has made the doubters look FOOLISH. Buffalo has themselves a good one. Outside of maybe Jim Kelly, Allen is already the best quarterback in Bills history. By the time his career is over, Allen will shatter all of Kelly’s records.

There was no reason to believe otherwise but now that Allen is signed long term, Buffalo now has a chance to start to build a powerhouse.
