McLaurin will receive a $28 million signing bonus in his deal, the largest ever given to a wide receiver. That, and 76.4-percent of the new money in his contract is guaranteed.
The wide receiver is coming off back-to-back 1,000 receiving yards seasons. IN 2021, McLaurin caught 77-of-130 targets for 1,053 yards and five touchdowns through 17 games. Overall, he recorded 222 receptions for 3,090 yards and 16 touchdowns through his first three seasons in the NFL.
