Congrats are in order for New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

The 25-year-old is making history after agreeing to a five-year extension with the Big Blue.

According to ESPN, Beckham signed on to receive a maximum $95 million contract ($90 million base value plus $5 million in incentives), with a guaranteed $65 million, making him the highest-paid wide receiver in football.

The three-time Pro Bowler did not play during the NFL preseason after injuring his ankle last October. He's gearing up to make his season debut in the Giants' September 9 opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He is now under contract through 2023.
