NFL: Reports: Dolphins sign WR Jaylen Waddle to $84.75M deal


Share post:

Jaylen Waddle and the Miami Dolphins agreed to a three-year, $84.75 million contract extension through the 2028 season, according to multiple reports Thursday.

Waddle, 25, would become one of the NFL’s highest-paid receivers with a reported guarantee of $76 million, rating behind only 2024 contract agreements for Eagles wideout A.J. Brown ($84 million) and Lions All-Pro Amon-Ra St. Brown ($77 million).

In his first three seasons in the NFL, Waddle set a team record by posting three straight 1,000-yard seasons. He has gained 3,385 receiving yards since being drafted sixth overall in 2021 from Alabama.

He caught 72 passes for 1,014 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games last season serving as the No. 2 wide receiver for Miami behind Tyreek Hill. Hill caught 119 passes for 1,799 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2023.

In 47 career regular-season games, Waddle has 251 receptions and 18 touchdowns.

The deal raises the bar for a handful of players angling for new contracts at the same position. Justin Jefferson (Vikings), CeeDee Lamb (Cowboys) and Brandon Aiyuk (49ers) are among those looking for long-term deals from their current clubs.
