Bengals news surrounds what a future extension for Joe Burrow could look like and the organization nearing a naming rights deal for Paul Brown Stadium. 

Thursday afternoon’s big news around the NFL was the Arizona Cardinals agreeing on an extension for Kyler Murray, tying him to the organization until 2028. The deal is worth $230.5 million and he’ll earn $106.15 million over the first three years.

It’s a hefty price to pay, especially for a quarterback with a losing record and who has yet to lead his team to a playoff win but hey — This is how the quarterback market works these days.

With this deal getting done, we’re inching closer to Joe Burrow’s extension becoming a hot topic of conversation. Murray’s deal allows us to get maybe more of a feel for how that could look. Jake Liscow had what seemed like the right idea when discussing Burrow’s future extension on Twitter.

As Liscow mentions, Burrow was drafted when he was 23 years old as opposed to Josh Allen being 22 when he was a rookie and Patrick Mahomes being 21. That will impact his eventual extension.

Another storyline that goes hand-in-hand with this is the Bengals in the process of renaming their stadium. The money they receive from that can help them pay Burrow the big-time money the former No. 1 overall pick deserves.

Here’s what’s trending in Bengals news.

This will be the first name change for the Bengals’ stadium, which is named after the founder. The Chiefs recently added a sponsor to their stadium title but still kept the famous Arrowhead Stadium in the naming rights (now it’s GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium). Perhaps the Bengals will do something similar so that Paul Brown Stadium can still be in the official title.

It’ll take some getting used to but ultimately it’ll save the organization money and they’re going to need all the help they can get when it comes to signing some of their biggest stars in the coming years.
