Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers have agreed to a massive long-term extension that will make him the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL by average salary, NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo reported on Tuesday.

Herbert is signing a five-year, $262.5 million deal, which just slightly surpasses Lamar Jackson’s April extension with the Ravens in terms of total money and average salary per year.

The new deal is set to run through the 2029 NFL season. The Chargers subsequently announced the extension.

Herbert will receive $218.7 million in guarantees in his new deal.
