The #Rams and WR Cooper Kupp have reached an agreement on a 3-year contract extension worth up to $48M, per me and @MikeGarafolo. Los Angeles has done work the last few days, with Jalen Ramsey going first and now Kupp. Time for football.

After signing Jalen Ramsey earlier this week, it seemed as though the Los Angeles had no cap space to sign Kupp. Well, like the Saints and Kamara, they managed to find cap space somewhere. The Rams had just a little over $6 million in cap space for this year and were $13 million over the cap for next year. Somehow, teams are managing to expose the salary cap.
Kupp’s average of $16 million per year comes in 12th in the league. That is a steal and comes behind Adam Thielen and Brandin Cooks. His contract also comes in above Jarvis Landry, Davante Adams, Stefon Diggs, and Allen Robinson‘s as well. With Kupp now signed, Robinson has his eyes on Chicago’s front office as he has for weeks.
As a Packer fan that was hoping Green Bay could potentially scoop Kupp up in free agency next year, this stings. He is one of the most underrated receivers in the league. The Rams somehow have kept both Kupp and Ramsey. Now it’s time to make the most out of a championship window that seemed closed.
