Only two days after reworking Aaron Donald’s deal to make him the highest-paid non-quarterback in the NFL, the Los Angeles Rams signed star wide receiver Cooper Kupp to a three-year contract extension that keeps him in the organization through the 2026 season.

Kupp still had two years and $30 million left on the contract he signed with the Rams in 2020, but after a historic season that saw him capture the receiving triple crown, he was in line for a well-deserved raise.

Kupp’s extension adds on three years and around $80 million to his contract, bringing it to a total of five years and around $110 million. He is expected to get $75 million guaranteed, which is the most ever for a wide receiver.

Kupp took to Twitter to thank the Rams organization and his teammates for helping him get to where he is today:

Appearing in all 17 games last season, Kupp hauled in 145 receptions for 1,947 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, falling just shy of the NFL receiving record.

The former third-round draft pick out of Eastern Washington continued his dominance in the playoffs, where he had multiple game-winning catches to help L.A. win the Super Bowl.

Kupp caught two touchdowns against the Cincinnati Bengals and was named Super Bowl LVI MVP for his outstanding performance.
