The Denver Broncos announced a four-year contract extension for wide receiver Courtland Sutton on Monday.
The deal is worth $60.8 million in all and includes $34.9 million in guaranteed money, NFL Network reported.
“Courtland is one of our core players and among the best wide receivers in the NFL,” Broncos general manager George Paton said in a statement.
“With his combination of size, speed, athleticism and work-ethic, Courtland is a special talent and an integral part of what we are building.
“It’s been a key priority to make sure he’s a Bronco well into the future. We’re thrilled to reach an agreement on this extension and look forward to Courtland’s continued growth and impact for the Broncos.”
Sutton, 26, has 43 catches for 617 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games (all starts) after missing most of the 2020 season with a torn ACL. He was injured in Week 2 of that campaign.
Sutton was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2019. He has 160 career catches for 2,499 yards and 12 TDs in 43 games (34 starts), all with the Broncos, who selected him in the second round of the 2018 draft.
The extension comes on the heels of the three-year, $34.5 million extension given to fellow WR Tim Patrick on Friday.
