He flat-out dominated the opposition by leading the league in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns.
That feat made him only the fourth player in NFL history to win the wideout triple crown.
He also had 13 straight games of at least 90 receiving yards, an NFL record.
Kupp saved the best for last by becoming Super Bowl LVI MVP, Offensive Player of the Year, and a First-Team All-Pro selection.
The Rams could have given him a lucrative extension as soon as the 2022 league year started.
However, he kept his patience a let other wide receivers sign their contracts.
In the end, the waiting game paid off, as shared by Spotrac.

Kupp tops the guaranteed money list for wide receivers at $75 million.
That amount is also the highest given to a non-quarterback offensive player.
Kupp Deserves Every Penny Of His New Deal
The former Eastern Washington standout played his heart out last season.
He played in all Rams games last season and was on the field for 95 percent of their snaps.
His efforts did not go unnoticed as the Rams locked him in before he could even explore free agency.
Without question, he will be one of the franchise’s cornerstones for the foreseeable future.
Likewise, wide receivers who are still looking for their big contract can point out the guaranteed money he got and use it as a bargaining chip.
