The time is right – and ripe – to be a star NFL wide receiver. These 11 pass-catchers have all received big contracts since the 2021 season ended. Makes everyone wonder who is next — Terry McLaurin, DK Metcalf or Deebo Samuel? Thanks to Spotrac.com for the financial data.

Cooper Kupp

Pretty good haul for third-round pick out of Eastern Washington. The Rams rewarded Cooper Kupp with a three-year, $ 80 million extension and all but $ 5 million is guaranteed.

AJ Brown

AJ Brown was traded from the Tennessee Titans to the Philadelphia Eagles after a contract impasse. The impasse passed when the Eagles landed Brown and rewarded him with a four-year, $ 100 million deal.

Stefon Diggs

The Buffalo Bills gave Stefon Diggs (Josh Allen’s favorite target) an additional four years and $ 96 million to the $ 25 million he had remaining on the final two years of his contract. The result is a six-year contract with an average annual salary of around $ 21 million.

Tyreek Hill

Davante Adams moves from Green Bay to Las Vegas and his reward from the team in Sin City is a sweet five-year, $ 141.25 million contract with the Raiders (average annual value of $ 28.25 million).

Allen Robinson

Allen Robinson wins all-around. He gets to leave Chicago and the porous Bears for the Super Bowl champion Rams. No knock on Chicago, but when it comes to NFL, would you rather be a Bear or a Ram? The contract is for three years and $ 46.5 million.

Brandin Cooks

Brandin Cooks has moved around the NFL, which was unlikely given how productive he has been. The Texans dug into their vault and came up with a two-year contract worth almost $ 40 million.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling

USAT

Someone had to benefit from the Chiefs sending Tyreek Hill to Miami. It was Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who goes from Aaron Rodgers to Patrick Mahomes and grabs a three-year, $ 30 million contract with KC.

Chris Godwin

You didn’t think the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were going to let Chris Godwin get away with Tom Brady returning, did you? How about a nice, fat three-year contract worth $ 60 million?

Mike Williams

Mike Williams catches everything thrown his way with the Chargers. There was thought he might be allowed to leave Los Angeles, but the Bolts got a jolt of common sense and gave the former Clemson star a three-year contract also worth $ 60 million.

DJ Moore

USAT

The Panthers went with the market and gave DJ Moore a big contract, too. Carolina’s wideout got a three-year, $ 61.884 million extension, according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. The deal includes $ 41.61 million guaranteed.
