His deal is slated to offer him a $40,000,000 signing bonus and a roster bonus of $4,535,018. Before the record-breaking contract, he was under a fully guaranteed four-year, $36 million deal with the Bengals.

The dual-threat quarterback, who is dealing with a calf injury, had already set franchise marks for the Bengals’ single-season throwing yards (4,611), touchdown passes (35) pass attempts (606), and completions (414) before the season even began.
