Eagles lock up Alshon Jeffery on four-year contract extension

  • Eagles sign Alshon Jeffery to a four-year extension

Jeffery's contract will have $27 million guaranteed and the deal can ultimately be worth $56 million with additional incentives. "I think that was the best opportunity for me".

Even when there were questions why the Eagles would sign players such as Jeffery to one-year contracts this offseason, owner Jeffrey Lurie said the Eagles wanted "optionality" - as Sam Hinkie once said - to balance the short-term and long-term interests. Jeffery's season started off slowly, and while his reception and yardage numbers aren't gaudy, Jeffery has been able to find the end zone, as he has 7 TD receptions.

Teammates and future free agents alike will be encouraged by the franchise making good with players who worked their tails off to help the team get where they are today. The six-year pro has hauled in 43 receptions for 619 yards and seven touchdowns on a team that's gone 10-1 and sitting atop the NFC East. Everyone has welcomed me with open arms and now I'm looking forward to being here for a long time. He has been a key target for quarterback Carson Wentz. "We are excited about his future here". He finished with 52 receptions for 821 yards and two touchdowns over 12 games.

None of the team's core would be almost as important, of course, without Wentz himself - the quarterback's meteoric second-year rise has elevated the Eagles on and off the field en route to an inevitable and long-awaited return to the playoffs.

The 27-year-old receiver expressed his interest in staying in Philadelphia when talking to media members last week.
