The Denver Broncos will manage to keep their star wideout Courtland Sutton out of free agency next offseason. According to multiple reports, the Broncos signed Sutton to an extension that runs through 2025.

Sutton’s new deal is reportedly worth $60.8 million and comes with $34.9 million guaranteed money. The 2018’s second-round pick out of SMU was previously playing in the final year of his rookie contract.

Sutton has been performing at a high level for Denver this season despite missing all but one game in 2020 due to an ACL injury. The 26-year-old currently has 43 receptions and 671 receiving yards to lead the Broncos in both categories while also coming down with two touchdowns.

Overall, Sutton has had 160 receptions for 2,499 yards and 12 touchdowns since becoming a pro. He was a Pro Bowler in 2019 when he posted all career-highs with 72 catches, 1,112 receiving yards, and 6 TDs.

Sutton is the second Denver’s wide receiver to get an extension in the past several days. Over the weekend, the franchise also locked veteran Tim Patrick to a new deal. Patrick, who has 37 receptions for 523 yards and four TDs in 2021, received $30 million over the next four years.

The Broncos now have all their top three wideout options on long-term contracts. Jerry Jeudy, the team’s No. 15 selection in 2020, is tied to the franchise at least through 2024.
