Todd Gurley’s New Rams Contract Extension Excites NFL Running Backs

00:00 Todd Gurley soon might be richer and more popular than his NFL peers, and they don’t seem to mind one bit.
The Los Angeles Rams announced Tuesday on their website they’ve re-signed their star running back to a lucrative four-year contract extension.
Gurley can earn up to $60 million under terms of the new deal, $45 million of it fully guaranteed, and his $15 million annual salary is a record high for an NFL running back, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Three of Gurley’s fellow NFL running backs, the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Leonard Fournette, the Arizona Cardinals’ David Johnson and the New Orleans Saints’ Mark Ingram II reacted to news of his contract with apparent glee.
After all, Gurley’s deal re-sets the market for players in that position.
Even Le’Veon Bell, whom the Pittsburgh Steelers will pay $14.5 million this season under the franchise tag, congratulated Gurley on his new deal.
As a fellow elite running back, Bell knows well Gurley’s contract will boost his earning potential next summer when he becomes a free agent.
Tuesday is a happy day for NFL running backs.
