Cooper Kupp getting 22 mil a yr....making less than AJ
Cooper Kupp extension...
Kupp is due $14.8 million in 2022 and $14.6 million in 2023. The $26.7 million per year Kupp is due to make from 2024-2026 would put him at No. 4 annually among his fellow wide receivers.
is it all guaranteed?
Makes sense, probably based off some unwritten incentive about amount of crying on Twitter. Brown has lots, lots im pretty sure Kupp only has a little. It’s about that production.
I haven't read most of this thread, but have we discussed how a team like the Rams can afford to write $50-60M checks to players like Aaron Donald and Cooper Kupp (with the money prorated over the length of the deal) whereas the Titans, with one of the NFL's relatively poorest owners, quite possibly don't have that kind of liquidity? Could have been a factor in the AJB trade.
It's one thing to be able to afford to pay out this kind of money over time, but not every owner in the NFL has that kind of money in the bank at any given moment. Stan Kroenke, the owner of the Rams, is way richer than the Adams family.

Of course, this kind of contract-structuring can happen only with an owner who has substantial funds without any kind of cash flow issues. L.A. has such an owner in Stan Kroenke, worth an estimated $12 billion (his brother-in-law, Rob Walton, may soon own the Broncos).
There have been a few times over the years when some owners—small-market ones—have raised the issue of putting a second cap on yearly amounts of cash over cap. But those voices in owners’ meetings have been quickly drowned out by large-market owners—such as Jerry Jones and Kroenke—who rely heavily on proration and cash over cap to minimize early cap charges on large player contracts.
The salary cap doesn’t exist for teams like LA
It is messed up how some teams seem to be able to completely ignore the cap.
40 pages o history should end soon! This clown ain’t a Titan!
And he doesn’t know which part of the city to go to in order to avoid rain…
That end quote was awesome. He said he was the best receiver for the Titans ever, and a Titan fan dropped in to say your name ain't D. Mason. WREKT
