Wide receiver Courtland Sutton has reportedly signed a $60.8 million four-year contract extension with the Denver Broncos, with $34.9 million in guaranteed money. The wideout was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2021 season.
Sutton completed 43 receptions for 617 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games this season. He missed almost all of the 2020 season after suffering a torn ACL in Week 1’s game.
The 26-year-old was a second round draft pick of the Broncos in 2018. He impressed during his rookie year, completing 42 passes for 504 yards and four touchdowns. He then had a breakout performance the following year, completing 72 passes for 1,112 receiving yards and six touchdowns. He earned a Pro Bowl selection for his achievements.
Sutton’s new deal comes on the heels of a three-year extension contract between the Broncos and another wide receiver, 27-year-old Tim Patrick, worth $30 million with $18.5 million guaranteed.
