The Los Angeles Rams and WR Cooper Kupp have agreed to a 3-year contract extension, according to NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
The contract is reportedly through the 2023 season, meaning that Kupp will play under the final year of his rookie contract. The contract is worth up to $48 million. This contract is well-earned since Kupp proved last season how vital he is to the Rams offense by earning just under 1,200 receiving yards.
The Rams drafted Kupp in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft out of Eastern Washington. In three seasons with the Rams, he earned 196 receptions, 2,596 receiving yards and 21 touchdowns.
This deal comes fresh after the Rams committed to a 5-year extension to CB Jalen Ramsey. This clears up the picture of how the Rams intend to approach the 2021 offseason. Though, they are not done making tough decisions with guys like S John Johnson, WR Josh Reynolds and CB Troy Hill. Until then, it appears the Rams are ready for the 2020 NFL season to begin.
