“It’s finally that time. The contract I was dreaming of since I was a little kid,” Justin shared on social media. “Being doubted during my entire time in the NFL. Not being highly recruited. Not being the 1st receiver off the draft board. Every step on the way was very tough for me. … To be given a gift to play this game at the highest level is a blessing. I can’t be more grateful for this chance.”

Minnesota owners announced that the wide receiver has earned his deal and that they are happy that Jefferson will play for the organization in the upcoming years.
