Drafted No. 57  in 2020, Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson has yet to establish himself as a consistent offensive threat in the team’s offense.

Van Jefferson Salary

The Rams’ wideout is entering the final year of his four-year contract. Out of Florida, Jefferson signed a four-year, $5,611,134 deal with the Reams, including a $1,640,824 signing bonus, with $2,505,876 guaranteed and an average annual salary of $1,402,784.

Since he was not drafted in the first round, he could not get a fifth-year option.

Van Jefferson Cap Hit

The 26-year-old carried a $1,530,309 cap hit in 2022. Jefferson’s final contract year will see him with a $1,785,361 cap hit in 2023.

Van Jefferson Potential Extension

There’s a lot to like about Jefferson’s overall skillset to the Rams on offense. Still, he’s lacked the overall consistency needed to establish himself as a premier threat. He wasn’t fully healthy for the 2022 season and played in just 11 games, tallying 389 yards through the air and three touchdowns.

In 2021, Jefferson put up a career-high 875 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
