The Los Angeles Rams announced that they have 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 around two years and $30 million left on the contract that he signed with the Rams in 2020. But after a historic season in which Kupp won the triple crown, the organization wanted to give him a raise and the sides quickly came together on this extension that now makes him one of the highest-paid wide receivers in the league.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Kupp’s extensions adds on three years and around $80 million to his contract, bringing it to a total of five years and around $110 million:

Kupp is expected to get around $75 million guaranteed in his extension, which is the most ever for a wide receiver:

This is obviously well-deserved for Kupp after a season in which he had 145 receptions, 1,947 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, falling just shy of the NFL receiving record. He continued that dominance in the playoffs, where he had multiple game-winning catches to help L.A. win the Super Bowl.

Kupp is as selfless a player as there is in the NFL, so despite his ongoing contract negotiations, he was present at voluntary and mandatory workouts this offseason. He remained confident that a deal would get done and now just two days after locking up Aaron Donald, Kupp will remain with the Rams long-term as well.
