That contract is paying for Jones at 28,29,30, and 31. His prime. Burrow contract will be paying for him at 32, 33, 34, and beyond.
Colorado is also not known league-wide as a team that players will want to go to, so its not a shock that they have to pay a bit of a premium. Vancouver if anything is the opposite.
Because of those reasons I think that even though Burrows is the better player today, Jones may end up with the bigger contract.
