WR Sutton renews contract with Broncos for $60M

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.

Four-year veteran

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.

Denver's young offense

Patrick and Sutton round out Denver’s young offensive group which includes 24-year-old tight end Noah Fant and 22-year-old wide receiver Jerry Jeudy.

The agreement with Sutton was first reported by the NFL network.

The Broncos at 5-5 are currently tied for last place in the AFC West with the Las Vegas Raiders. They will come back from their Week 11 bye to face the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET.
