The Denver Broncos have signed wide receiver Courtland Sutton to a four-year extension, according to NFL Network reporters. Sutton’s agent told NFL Network his client has agreed to a four-year extension worth up to $60.8 million. The deal includes $34.9 million in some combination of partially and fully guaranteed money.

Based purely on APY, the deal makes Sutton the 16th highest paid wide receiver. Based on guaranteed money APY, the deal makes him the eighth highest paid wide receiver. DeAndre Hopkins is currently tops in both categories with a $27,250,000 APY and $21,375,000 in guaranteed money per year.

Sutton tore his ACL last season and only played in one game. He was coming off a career year in 2019 in which he caught 72 passes for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns. Through ten games this season, Sutton has 43 receptions for 617 yards and two touchdowns.

Sutton is earning $2,183,000 in base salary this year in what was the final year of his rookie contract. The team did not have a fifth-year option because Sutton was a second-round pick, and so he was due to hit free agency next spring.
