The top four highest-paid receivers in the NFL have one thing in common: They will all be free agents after the 2027 season.

Dolphins superstar Tyreek Hill, who signed a four-year, $120 million contract in 2022, tops the list as the highest-paid NFL receiver at $30 million.

The 2022 league receiving touchdowns leader Davante Adams, and ’21 AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year Cooper Kupp, round out the top three at $28 million and $26.7 million, respectively. In ’22, Adams signed a five-year, $140 million contract with the Raiders, while Kupp signed a three-year, $80.1 million extension with the Rams.

Eagles receiver A.J. Brown comes in at No. 4 making $25 million annually after signing a four-year, $100 million contract in 2022.

Taking the fifth spot is Seahawks receiver D.K. Metcalf making $24 million. In 2022 Metcalf signed a three-year, $72 million extension with the Seahawks.
