The NFL is waiting for Justin Jefferson to sign his contract extension

The Minnesota Vikings have one of the best players in the National Football League in Justin Jefferson and they are actively trying to extend him. In doing so, Jefferson is likely to set the market for both wide receivers and non-quarterbacks.

Because his extension is likely coming sooner rather than later, the NFL is looking at what he might be getting, including other wide receivers. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is one of those players who could have his contract impacted by Jefferson’s. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that Lamb isn’t in a hurry to sign a new contract.

The way Fowler described it on Sports Center is that he is waiting for Jefferson to sign his contract. Why is Lamb waiting? He likely wants to surpass Jefferson in how much the contract is worth.

This isn’t much of a surprise. Everyone wants to be the highest paid at their respective positions when they get that extension. The difference is when one guy gets paid, the next guy will take the crown. Is that something that Jefferson is willing to wait out so he can stay at the top? Only time will tell.
