Garrett Wilson will make more than $20 million in his first four years in the NFL.
Wilson secured his first NFL contract on Wednesday when he agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $20.55 million with the New York Jets, who selected him with the No. 10 overall pick in this year’s NFL draft.

Jets now have all three of their first-round picks under contract on May 18.
Like fellow former Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave, who was selected just one pick after Wilson with the No. 11 overall selection in the 2022 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints, Wilson’s contract is fully guaranteed.
Cumulatively, the two former Ohio State wide receivers will make $39.82 million over the next four years, as Olave’s contract with the Saints is worth $19,271,874.
Four of Ohio State’s six 2022 NFL draft picks have now signed their initial NFL contracts. Fifth-round pick Tyreke Smith signed a deal with the Seattle Seahawks that is worth $3,980,975 over four years with a $320,976 signing bonus, while seventh-round pick Thayer Munford signed a contract worth $3,757,060 over four years with a $97,060 signing bonus.
