NFL news: Denver Broncos giving WR Tim Patrick a 3-year contract – Broncos Wire

The Denver Broncos are finalizing a three-year contract extension with wide receiver Tim Patrick that will keep him with the team through the 2024 season, according to a report from KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis.
Patrick (6-4, 212 pounds) will receive $30 million over the next three years with $18.5 million guaranteed, according to Klis. If he reaches all the possible incentives, Patrick could earn up to $34.5 million.
Patrick’s extension will begin in 2022 after finishing out his one-year 2021 deal that’s worth $3.384 million.
Patrick entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Utah with the Baltimore Ravens in 2017. After being cut by the Ravens, Patrick went to training camp with the San Francisco 49ers but failed to make their 53-man roster.
Patrick then signed with Denver’s practice squad, only to be cut a few weeks later. The Broncos re-signed him one week after cutting him, which turned out to be a great move for the team.
Patrick head a breakout season last year, catching 51 passes for 742 yards and six touchdowns. Through 10 games this season, the soon-to-be 28-year-old receiver has hauled in 37 receptions for 523 yards and four scores.
Fellow receivers Jerry Jeudy (four years, $15 million with a fifth-year option) and KJ Hamler (four years, $7 million) are still on their rookie contracts, so Denver has a trio of talented receivers signed through the 2023 season.
The next order of business at receiver will be giving an extension to Courtland Sutton, a former second-round pick. Given that he is younger (26) and has a more decorated resume (including a Pro Bowl), Sutton will likely seek a contract larger than Patrick’s. Sutton is currently scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in 2022.
Broncos general manager George Paton said in July that Sutton is “core” player, one the team hopes to keep beyond the 2021 season.
The time for Sutton’s contract buzz will come later, though. The big news of the day is Patrick receiving a well-deserved extension with a big raise. From undrafted to $10 million a year. Not bad. Not bad at all.
