ESPN’s Dan Graziano reacts to Justin Jefferson Vikings contract extension

ESPN’s Dan Graziano speaks with our Darren Wolfson about Jefferson extension

The Minnesota Vikings and wide receiver Justin Jefferson agreed to a four-year extension that’s the richest contract in the NFL for a non-quarterback. Jefferson will get $110 million guaranteed in the deal that’s worth as much as $140 million, with more than $88 million due at signing. Jefferson has the most receiving yards in league history through a player’s first four seasons.

“We ain’t stopping here,” Jefferson posted on Instagram along with a video of highlights and thank-you’s in honor of the contract. “There’s more to be done.”

Jefferson’s annual average of $35 million per year on the new deal passed San Francisco defensive end Nick Bosa ($34 million), whose contract extension before last season was negotiated by the same agency, William Morris Endeavor, that represents Jefferson.

Jefferson missed seven games last season with a hamstring injury and still reached 1,074 receiving yards. The 2022 AP NFL Offensive Player of the year was the 22nd overall pick in the 2020 draft out of LSU.
