Days after reaching a new deal with superstar defensive lineman Aaron Donald, the Los Angeles Rams have taken care of another star player, reaching agreement with wide receiver Cooper Kupp. The three-year extension on his current contract keeps him in Los Angeles for the next five seasons, and is worth $110 million.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to report on the deal:

The deal also contains $75 million in guaranteed money for Kupp:

Kupp was drafted by the Rams in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft, and put together a career season a year ago with Los Angeles. Last season, Kupp set career-high marks in targets (191), receptions (145), receiving yards (1,947), touchdowns (16), yards per game (114.5) and first downs (89).

Kupp enjoyed a great post-season with the Rams, catching 33 passes for 478 yards and six touchdowns for Los Angeles during the playoffs. His late touchdown catch allowed the Rams to stave off a comeback effort from Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Kupp caught a pair of touchdowns in Super Bowl LVI, including this, the game-winner:
