The Detroit Lions have reportedly agreed to an extension with All-Pro wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown worth more than $120 million, including $77 million in total guarantees, through the 2028 season, sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport on Wednesday (April 24).

"Sources: The #Lions have a deal for one of the top young talents, agreeing on an extension for WR Amon-Ra St. Brown. He gets 4 years and more than $120M with $77M guaranteed. The deal done by @JobyBranion of @VanguardSG makes St. Brown the highest-paid WR in the NFL," Rapoport wrote.

The Lions appeared to have acknowledged the deal, sharing a video of Lions general manager and executive vice president Brad Holmes celebrating the team's selection of running back Jahmyr Gibbs during last year's draft, following various reports.

St. Brown, 24, was set to become a free agent next offseason had the two sides not reached an extension. The former USC standout is coming off back-to-back Pro Bowl seasons, which included recording a career-best 119 receptions, 1,515 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2023, having been selected as a first-team All-Pro.

St. Brown was selected by the Lions at No. 112 overall in the fourth-round of the 2021 NFL Draft and quickly exceeded expectations, recording 90 receptions for 912 yards and five touchdowns during his rookie season.
