Cooper Kupp, Rams reach agreement on $110M extension

Cooper Kupp is coming off the most prolific season for a wide receiver in NFL history. Now he’s getting paid as such. 

Kupp and the Los Angeles Rams have agreed to an extension that will pay the All-Pro wideout $110 million over the next five seasons, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported. The new deal adds three years to his old one and about $75 million, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported. The team soon confirmed it had locked up Kupp.

It comes just two days after Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald signed a three-year mega extension of his own. That pact made Donald the highest-paid non-quarterback ever. Kupp’s puts him among the top-paid receivers. 

He proved his standing in that class last year by recording the first receiving triple crown in more than a decade, and the fifth in history. Kupp caught 145 passes for 1,947 yards – both totals were the second-highest ever – with 16 touchdowns to earn Offensive Player of the Year. During an epic postseason run, he tacked on 33 receptions, 478 yards and six touchdowns, including the game-winning score in Super Bowl LVI en route to MVP honors.

A week shy of his 29th birthday, Kupp couldn’t be happier about his football future.
