The Rams just made Aaron Donald the highest paid non-quarterback in the league, while Cooper Kupp's new deal makes him just the sixth highest paid receiver. NFL players now make silly money like they do in the NBA and MLB, but fair is fair, Kupp signed for under his market value.

Rams signed WR Cooper Kupp to a three-year extension through 2026.
The deal is essentially a new five-year, $110 million deal that puts Kupp among the league's highest-paid wide receivers at $22 million per year. Kupp, 29 next week, said he didn't need to reset the wideout market, and he now slides in as the sixth-highest paid receiver behind Tyreek Hill, Davante Adams, DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Brown, and Stefon Diggs. Kupp is coming off an historic 145-1,947-16 line last year as the Offensive Player of the Year. He's the WR1 headed into fantasy drafts.
To be fair, the $75 million guaranteed is the highest ever paid to a WR.

Good for the kid! I do kinda wish he'd held out for a 6-year, $300 million dollar deal though (fully guaranteed).

Forbes thinks Kupp's popularity stems from his production. Maybe. Maybe White people like having a hard working and humble White Athlete for their kids to idolize.

Cooper Kupp - the current magical outlier in the NFL. According to caste thought no other White WR is capable of producing 70% of what Kupp does but they roll out these magical black wrs year after year who always fail to achieve their unquantifiable upside.

Cooper Kupp's skill level is off the charts. Every team needs at least one Cooper Kupp. :)

Kupp's ankle doesn't seem to be anything too serious for now. In Kupp's own words, he "dodged a bullet."

Even the DWFs are questioning why McVay kept Kupp in a blowout game. McVay is looking more like a Belichick type "genius."

Glad he evaded a serious injury. Thanks for the update!

Cooper Kupp will undergo ankle surgery and be put on IR. Though he's eligible to return after four weeks if healthy enough, given the Rams' looming lost season he's likely done for 2022. Very sad.

I still hold out hope he can come back strong in about 5-6 weeks, play a couple more games and hopefully hit the 1k mark. Very important for his legacy status and (potential) HOF admission.

Sad news but it's not surprising. When I saw it it looked really bad. I don't think he should try to come back this season unless there's a total turnaround on both sides of the ball, i.e. a four game winning streak in dominate fashion and a change in team mindset... and that isn't likely. He should heal up and write this dreadful season off.
