Thousand Oak, California. – Los Angeles Ram and receiver Cooper Coupe have agreed to an extension of a three-year contract that includes them on the team through the 2023 season.
Kupp’s deal comes two days after teammate Jaylen Ramsey agreed to a five-year, $ 105 million extension that includes a $ 71.2 million guarantee in signing – the most lucrative contract for defensive backs in NFL history.
In the immediate aftermath of Ramsey’s expansion, coach Sean McVay hoped that Ram would complete a deal with Kupp before the season opener Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.
So did Kupp, who turned 27 in June.
Kupp said earlier this week, “I would prefer Ram to live longer.” “I like it here. I love my teammates, I love coaches.”
A third-round pick from Eastern Washington in 2017, Kupp was scheduled to earn $ 2.1 million in the final season of his rookie deal.
After tearing the ACL in the middle of his left knee through the 2018 season, Kupp returned last season with a vengeance. He caught 94 passes for 1,161 yards and 10 touchdowns, all career bests. In a Week 8 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in London, he caught seven passes for 220 yards and a touchdown.
In 39 career games, including 28 starts, Kupp has caught 196 passes for 2,596 yards and 21 touchdowns.
