Cincinnati Bengals lock in Ja’Marr Chase through 2025 Season

The Cincinnati Bengals have made a major but obvious move today. The team has decided to stick with Ja’Marr Chase for another season after re-signing QB Jake Browning.

The Bengals announced on Wednesday that they have exercised Ja’Marr Chase’s fifth-year option. The WR will be under contract with the team through the 2025 season. 

After this new extension, Ja’Marr Chase will make $21.9 million guaranteed for another year before his rookie contract ends.

Chase, who wasn’t impressed by Patrick Mahomes was eligible for a contract extension and could have signed a multi-year extension with the team. However, the Bengals opted for the fifth-year option, which means there will be no urgency for contract extension now. 

Depending on how well things work out between the WR and the team, they might consider signing a multi-year contract. Considering the exceptional stats of Ja’Marr Chase, the team will try their best to retain him for a long time.
