The NFL is handing out a number of massive contracts on Monday, even though the league season doesn’t officially start until March 14.
Former Mizzou OL Mitch Morse is the latest to get paid, and he’s getting a deal that will make him the highest-paid center in the NFL.
Per a report from Mike Garafolo, Morse will make more than $11 million per season via his new contract with the Buffalo Bills:
Morse will get north of $11m per season, which will make him the league’s highest-paid center. At least for now. Matt Paradis has yet to agree to a deal. https://t.co/6d9eSXyJEy

Morse will almost certainly be sad to leave the state of Missouri, but this money is too much for the ex-Tiger to pass up.
Morse was a second-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft and has spent the first four years of his career with the Chiefs.
