Zeke's Future Contract, just got EXPENSIVE!!

The Los Angeles Rams and Todd Gurley have agreed to a four-year contract extension that, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, resets the market for running backs.

The Rams announced Tuesday that the extension keeps Gurley under contract through 2023 but did not disclose financial terms. A source told Schefter that the deal is worth $60 million and includes $45 million guaranteed, the largest guarantee given to a running back.

Gurley also will receive a $20 million signing bonus, the source told Schefter. It is the largest per-year average for any running back, providing a new benchmark for other running backs looking for new deals, such as Arizona's David Johnson and Dallas' Ezekiel Elliott.

This is right at the franchise tag number for RBs, $12 million/year. Not nearly as ridiculous as is could've been. I'd gladly pay that for a top-5 RB.

Zeke is going to get expensive. But he is one running back that is worth it. He has the ability to be one of the best ever.
