After one of the greatest receiving seasons in NFL history, Cooper Kupp isn’t done yet.
He’s the first since 2005 to lead the league in receptions (145), receiving yards (1,947), and receiving touchdowns (16), which won him the AP Offensive Player of the Year.
Now, he’s the first receiving triple crown winner in NFL history to play in the Super Bowl — and the third receiving yards leader after Hall of Famers Drew Pearson (1977) and Jerry Rice (‘89, ‘94).
If Kupp can cap off his dream season by hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, he’ll arguably become the most coveted receiver in the league — and a legend to boot.
- Despite his dominance, Kupp’s three-year, $48 million contract ranks as just the 16th-most lucrative among NFL receivers by total value.
- The deal has an out after next season, but the 28-year-old will be a free agent by 2024 at the latest.
- With seven receptions on Sunday, Kupp would pass Travis Kelce (31 in 2020) for the most in a single postseason.
Kupp (+600*) is third in the Super Bowl MVP odds behind Matthew Stafford (+100*) and Joe Burrow (+225*). He would be the eighth WR in NFL history to take home the award.
Then again, he’s only the third WR ever to win OPOY — and the first to earn a league MVP vote since Randy Moss in 1998.
