The Miami Dolphins could not get Ja’Marr Chase as their No. 6 at the 2021 NFL Draft, but they still found a wide receiver very “familiar” with franchise quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. He is none other than Jaylen Waddle who played college football at Alabama.
So, naturally, after he was picked sixth overall by the Dolphins in the 2021 NFL Draft, fans were curious about his new salary and mostly what he is like when he is not playing football.
Below is writing answering every query.
Jaylen Waddle Salary
Spotrac projected Jaylen Waddle’s contract with the Dolphins should be — fully guaranteed 4 years contract worth $27 million, with a $17 million signing bonus, $4.9 million 2021 cap hit, and not to miss, with a 5th-year option available.
Jaylen Waddle Net Worth
So, the Dolphins had to choose between Jaylen Waddle or DeVonta Smith. And clearly, they went with Jaylen in a surprising move when the selection was made.
Getting him as their No. 6 pick made plenty of sense to the Dolphins. Head coach Brian Flores explained they believe Jaylen will fit inside or outside.
“We think he’ll add a speed element. Obviously he has some value in the return game. I think his versatility is a big part of this. His ability to play inside, play in the slot, play on the perimeter, play in the return game. Again, we’re very, very excited to have him.”
So, this would mark the very start of his professional career. Although one can not outlook his impressive collegiate career of which Jaylen Waddle has already collected an estimated $15 million and more net worth.
Then again, he has a long road ahead. He would still have to prove his efficacy in the forthcoming games. Even though he has already been dubbed the fastest, most explosive receiver in the draft he will have to work on what Scouting reported as his lack of “great size and experience”.
In the meantime, we can only wait and see if or not Jaylen Waddle could be the next Tyreek Hill?
