$110 million guaranteed

A record deal: the Vikings and three-time Pro-Bowl WR Justin Jefferson reached agreement on a four-year, $140 million contract extension that includes $110 million guaranteed and makes him not only the highest-paid WR in NFL history, but the highest-paid non-QB in NFL history, sources tell ESPN.

Jefferson’s deal includes $88.743 million due at signing, the highest non-QB guarantee at signing in NFL history. And it resets the WR market.

Multiple wide receivers are in the market for new deals including CeeDee Lamb, Ja’Marr Chase, Brandon Aiyuk, Amari Cooper and Tee Higgins.
