That would be a lot of money coming off the books. They have plans for it.
The former fifth-round pick is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and this is the first chance they have to pay him (you can’t extend rookie deals before three years have passed).
He has 3,255 receiving yards, 477 receiving yards, and 29 combined touchdowns in three seasons, with the kind of game-breaking speed that makes any pla a potential big play.
They can’t pay quarterback Patrick Mahomes yet, but this figures to be an enormous deal.
