Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee has agreed to a four-year extension with the team.
The deal is reportedly worth $31 million minimum, with $15 million guaranteed. Incentives for the contract exceed $5 million. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, this deal makes Higbee one of the top-10 highest paid tight ends in the NFL.
Last year, Higbee had 24 receptions for 292 yards and two touchdowns. In his three year career, he has played all 48 games for the Rams, racking up a career total of 672 yards on 60 receptions, for four touchdowns.
This signing comes mere days after Jared Goff was extended for $134 million, with $110 million guaranteed, over four years.
It seems the Rams know what they value and are willing to spend a premium to keep players they think are worthwhile. They already owe Aaron Donald, Jared Goff and Todd Gurley alone a guaranteed $246,351,000 through 2025.
Regardless, it seems as if Goff will have a reliable tight end to keep him company through the entirety of his contract.
