The Los Angeles Rams are not done with their offseason spending spree just yet. After signing star defensive end Aaron Donald to a record extension earlier this week, the Rams have now also handed out a new deal to All-Pro wideout Cooper Kupp.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Kupp inked a three-year extension that is worth $80 million. It includes $75 million in guaranteed money and brings the total value of his contract to $110 million. The 28-year-old is now under contract with the Rams through the 2026 NFL season. 

The improved contract rewards Kupp for a historic campaign he had in 2021. The Eastern Washington product finished the regular season with 145 catches for 1,947 yards and 16 touchdowns. He led the league in all three categories and became just the fourth player to do so since 1970.

Kupp continued playing great football in the postseason and was one of the biggest reasons why the Rams won their first Super Bowl since 1999. He ended up catching a record 33 passes for 478 receiving yards and six TDs in the playoffs while also earning Super Bowl MVP honors.

Since entering the league as a third-round pick in 2017, Cooper Kupp has made a total of 433 catches for 5,517 yards and 40 touchdowns. His resume includes First-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors on top of PFWA All-Rookie Team selection.
