The Vikings’ Justin Jefferson simply grew to become the NFL’s highest-paid receiver after the squad lavished him with a brand new four-year, $140 million contract extension.

The deal wasn’t a shock — Jefferson has established himself as one of many NFL’s premier playmaking threats. What could also be shocking to some, nonetheless, is the surge of big-money contracts which have been doled out to huge receivers prior to now couple of seasons. Since 2022, Amon-Ra St. Brown, A.J. Brown, Cooper Kupp and Jaylen Waddle have all gotten large payouts. Every of the aforementioned contracts got here after the Dolphins made Tyreek Hill the highest-paid wideout within the league in 2022, and every has been greater than Hill’s earlier whole.

That whole: 4 years, $120 million, signed in 2022 after Miami acquired him from Kansas Metropolis. And in line with Hill’s agent Drew Rosenhaus, Hill might be in line for one more wage improve.

“Let’s simply say it is secure to acknowledge that I have been in contact with [general manager] Chris Grier and [SVP] Brandon Shore,” Rosenhaus informed FOX affiliate WSVN-TV. “I definitely have a fluid line of communication with them, and I’ve shared with them how Tyreek feels. And I will additionally reiterate that Tyreek has stated that he would love to complete his profession with the Dolphins. So, with out entering into any specifics, the Dolphins understand how we really feel.”

Hill will obtain money payouts of $19.765 million in 2024, $22.935 million in 2025, and $45 million in 2026. However the common worth of his deal sits round $25 million, almost $10 million under Jefferson’s common worth of $35 million. The squad would take a $22.6 million cap hit if it chooses to launch him earlier than 2025, however it might save $11.3 million ought to it go that route. 

Hill is likely one of the league’s greatest, and primarily based on Rosenhaus’s feedback, he needs to be paid as such. And his numbers again that up. He put up a career-high 1,799 receiving yards in 2023 to enrich 13 TDs, whereas boasting a whopping 15.1 yards per reception.  The Dolphins will not be keen about upping his contract whole, particularly given the latest deal they made with Waddle and releasing Professional Bowl nook Xavien Howard. Howard’s launch, nonetheless, internet the crew $18.5 million in cap house.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter informed Pat McAfee that he believed Miami would in reality determine one thing out to make sure Hill stays there for the long term.

“I believe that the Dolphins are going to determine a option to modify Tyreek Hill’s deal,” he stated. “I don’t know in the event that they’re going to tear up the deal and provides him a complete new deal, however I believe that deal will get adjusted and that Tyreek Hill will wind up getting extra advantages, concessions, salaries, cash from the Dolphins to carry him additional in line to the receiver that he’s.

I believe that the Dolphins know that that’s coming. They clearly took care of Jaylen Waddle, understanding they will even should deal with Tyreek Hill. You keep in mind the Philadelphia Eagles within the span of per week getting completed each DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown, understanding that Justin Jefferson was approaching this deal and principally that deal will get completed. I believe that the Eagles received two receiver offers completed, and now the Dolphins know that they’re ready to have the ability to get two receiver offers completed with Tyreek Hill subsequent.”

Hill is one in all Miami’s most essential gamers together with Tua Tagovailoa, and if it needs to maintain him — and its quarterback — completely happy, a brand new deal could also be within the playing cards sooner fairly than later.
