ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos and wide receiver Courtland Sutton have agreed to a four-year contract extension worth more than $60 million with $35 million guaranteed.

Sutton’s extension comes two days after wide receiver Tim Patrick signed a three-year extension worth $30 million with $18.5 million in guarantees.

“Courtland is one of our core players and among the best wide receivers in the NFL,” Broncos GM George Paton said. “With his combination of size, speed, athleticism and work-ethic, Courtland is a special talent and an integral part of what we are building. It’s been a key priority to make sure he’s a Bronco well into the future. We’re thrilled to reach an agreement on this extension and look forward to Courtland’s continued growth and impact for the Broncos.”

Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson or any other veteran quarterback who might have his eyes on Denver in the offseason will see that the Broncos have their top four receivers— Patrick, Sutton, 2020 first-rounder Jerry Jeudy and 2020 second-rounder KJ Hamler—under contract for several more seasons.

Sutton, Denver’s second-round draft pick in 2018 out of SMU, has 43 catches for 617 yards and two TDs in his return this season from a torn ACL that sidelined him almost all of 2020.

Sutton had a Pro Bowl year in 2019, when he caught 72 passes for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns.

Sutton and Patrick are first and second, respectively, in receiving yards for the Broncos (5-5), who host the Los Angeles Chargers (6-4) on Sunday.
