Kupp is now due $110 million over the next five seasons and is under contract through 2026. His $75 million guaranteed represents the highest total ever given to an NFL wide receiver.

"The Los Angeles Rams made a childhood vision a reality when they showed their belief in me on draft day and [Wednesday] they showed continued faith," Kupp wrote on social media.
