Report: Bills looking to sign Josh Allen to 'massive' contract extension

Josh Allen is going to be a Buffalo Bill for a very long time. At least, the franchise hopes so. 

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Buffalo is expected to approach Allen's representation about a "massive" contract extension this offseason. 

An extension would likely make Allen one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL. However, Rapoport adds the league's 2021 salary cap will play a determining role in the situation. 

Allen currently has two years remaining on his four-year, $21 million rookie deal. After a breakout year in 2020, it's no surprise the Bills want to lock him up for the future. 

The 24-year-old led the Bills to their first AFC East title since 1995. He helped Buffalo go 13-3, completing 69.2% of his passes for 4,544 yards and 37 touchdowns against 10 interceptions. He also rushed for 421 yards, eight touchdowns and a receiving score. 

Kansas City Chiefs signal-caller Patrick Mahomes is currently the NFL's highest-paid quarterback at $45 million per season. Deshaun Watson ($39 million) and Russell Wilson ($35 million) are also among the highest-paid.
