Alshon Jeffery: Philadelphia Eagles sign WR to four-year extension

Eagles sign WR Alshon Jeffery to 4-year extension

The Eagles originally signed Jeffery to a one-year deal back in March, but the 27-year-old has been so impressive that the franchise has chose to extend him for the long haul.

But thanks to Jeffery wasting no time making an impact along with proving he can stay health, the Eagles announced their decision on Saturday to reward their No. 1 wideout with a four-year extension worth $52 million to keep him around through the 2021 season. "Like I said the other day, I love it here", Jeffery said.

Players are looking at this Eagles team and the opportunity to play with a budding star such as Wentz and signing on the dotted line when they can. "We are excited about his future here".

Jeffery has been a tremendous asset to the Eagles' passing attack. In the last four games, he scored five of his seven total touchdowns for this season.


Older veterans like LeGarrette Blount and Patrick Robinson may not be viewed as candidates for such extensions despite their own strong play this season. As the Eagles are 10-1, Jeffery was more than convinced that this is where he belongs. For his efforts, he was selected to the Pro Bowl. Tight end Zach Ertz and wide receiver, Nelson Agholor are both having career-high season's.

This contract makes complete sense for Philadelphia.

It appears as though Alshon Jeffery has found a new (permanent) home. But MVP frontrunner Carson Wentz, who welcomed Torrey Smith and rookie Mack Hollins in addition to Jeffery, has coaxed meaningful contributions from everyone. Now, they are securing the necessary pieces to make sure the future continues to be bright.

Philadelphia has identified a winning formula.
