The Philadelphia Eagles announced Saturday that they’ve locked up WR Alshon Jeffery to a four-year extension.
- According to Adam Schefter, Jeffery receives a four-year, $52 million contract from the Eagles that includes another $1 million per year in incentives.
- Ian Rapoport adds that the contract includes $27 million guaranteed.
“Alshon has been a tremendous addition to this organization on and off the field,” the Philadelphia Eagles said in a team statement. “We place a priority on making sure we are able to build the team around quality players like Alshon who embrace this team and this city the way he has. We are excited about his future here.”
“First of all I just want to thank Jeffrey Lurie and the entire Eagles organization,” Jeffery said. “Like I said the other day, I love it here. I’m blessed to have the opportunity to play for this organization and for these fans. Everyone has welcomed me with open arms and now I’m looking forward to being here for a long time. We have a great group here and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
Jeffery, 27, was taken in the second-round of the 2012 NFL draft by the Bears. He played out the final year of his four-year, $4.54 million rookie contract with Chicago before agreeing to a one-year, $9.5 million contract with the Eagles this past March.
Jeffery was in line to be an unrestricted free agent again next year.
In 2017, Jeffery has appeared in 11 games for the Eagles and caught 43 passes for 619 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 34 receiver out of 116 qualifying players.
