Minnesota Vikings

Vikings lock up Justin Jefferson on four-year extension
$110 million guaranteed
By: Mike Krueger | Jun 3 2024, 9:19 am

A record deal: the Vikings and three-time Pro-Bowl WR Justin Jefferson reached agreement on a four-year, $140 million contract extension that includes $110 million guaranteed and makes him not only the highest-paid WR in NFL history, but the highest-paid non-QB in NFL history, sources tell ESPN. Jefferson’s deal includes $88.743 million due at signing, the highest non-QB guarantee at signing in NFL history. And it resets the WR market. WME Football negotiated and confirmed the deal.

FFToday's Take: According to Schefter, multiple teams inquired about trading for Jefferson this off-season but the Vikings turned them away. Jefferson was the WR7, WR5 and WR1 from 2020 through 2022 and posted a 68-1074-5 line in just 10 games last season. Multiple wide receivers are in the market for new deals including CeeDee Lamb, Ja'Marr Chase, Brandon Aiyuk, Amari Cooper and Tee Higgins.
