Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp has no intention of abstaining from L.A’s offseason program while he negotiates his contract.
Cooper Kupp is due $14.5 million in 2022 and $14.25 million next season and is in talks for an extension.

Cooper Kupp had the game winning reception with a minute and a half left in Super Bowl LVI against the Bengals.
