Josh Allen Contract & Salary Breakdown

Last Updated: January 23, 2023
The Buffalo Bills gave their superstar quarterback Josh Allen a new mega-deal. Boardroom looks at the numbers.

Josh Allen is among the NFL’s top quarterbacks. In his first two years as a starter, he compiled a 56% completion percentage with 30 passing touchdowns in 28 games. Allen bested those totals each of the past two seasons individually, guiding the Bills to the AFC Championship Game both times.

While Allen has yet to facilitate a Bills return to the Super Bowl, he is the cornerstone if the team is to achieve that goal. As a result, the Bills have signed Allen to a 6-year, $258 million deal that begins with this upcoming season.

The AAV for Allen’s contract ranks fifth among both NFL players and quarterbacks, further illustrating the value of an elite signal-caller. Boardroom takes a look at the details of the Bills’ groundbreaking Josh Allen contract.
