The Philadelphia Eagles locked up key players on each side of the field for the near future.
Dallas Goedert and Avonte Maddox were both signed to contract extensions on Friday and Saturday respectively. Goedert’s extension is a four-year deal while Maddox signed a three-year extension on Saturday.
Goedert and Maddox become the third and fourth players respectively from the 2018 NFL Draft class to sign second contracts with the Eagles. The fourth-year tight end will reportedly make roughly $57 million if he plays out his contract with the Eagles, while Maddox is reportedly set to make $22.5 million per ESPN.
In 51 career games with 34 starts, Goedert has registered 166 receptions, 1,894 yards, and 14 touchdowns. His role on the offense has continued to grow following Zach Ertz’s trade to the Arizona Cardinals earlier this regular season.
Since 2020, Goedert has produced the fifth-highest receiving average (12.7 yards per catch) and receiving first-down percentage (66.7%) among NFL tight ends, while also ranking sixth among his position group in receiving yards per game (47.7) during that stretch.
Maddox, also in his fourth NFL season, is enjoying probably his best season to date under new defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon. The 25-year-old has recorded 47 total tackles and has already established career highs in tackles for loss (4) and forced fumbles (2) this season. In addition, he has totaled four passes defensed, including one interception, along with two quarterback hits, and a half-sack.
He has continued to blossom into a top nickelback in the NFC East.
The Eagles are back in action on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field against the New Orleans Saints.
