1. Cooper Kupp
Speaking on current contracts that are absolute steals, thanks to Cooper Kupp‘s rookie deal from 2017 after the Eastern Washington product was selected in the third round, the Rams have their star wideout under contract through 2020.
Even more exciting for Los Angeles, Kupp’s base salary from each season is less than a million dollars, showing this is easily one of the biggest steals across the NFL from a contract perspective.
But knowing the Rams when it comes to rewarding their key players over the last couple of years, it seems like only a matter of time before Kupp receives a hefty new deal from the team to make sure he’s happy, and wants to stick around beyond the 2020 season.
The fact that Kupp is already on the verge of setting new career highs across the board at the halfway mark of the 2019 season shows what kind of impact he’s made in the passing game throughout his career in Los Angeles.
Just look at what took place in London when Kupp caught seven passes for 220 yards to go along with a touchdown, and this is one of many examples that show how valuable the wideout is to the organization.
Also, after opening up their checkbook in September to reward Jared Goff with a hefty new deal, the Rams realize the importance of making sure their beloved quarterback has the proper weapons to work with moving forward.
Sooner or later, Los Angeles will need to pay up to make sure Kupp is happy, especially since he’s arguably the best wideout on the team at the moment.
