According to Jason La Canfora, Eagles GM Howie Roseman is working on securing contract extensions with three core Eagles players: TE Zach Ertz, OT Lane Johnson and S Malcolm Jenkins

All three players are seen as vital to the success of the team and part of Philadelphia’s long-term core. The Eagles also just signed G Brandon Brooks to a four-year extension. 

Ertz, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2013. He’s in the fourth year of his six-year, $43.64 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed.

Ertz stands to make base salaries of $7.5 million (2019), $7.25 million (2020), and $7.75 million (2020) over the remainder of his deal.

In 2019, Ertz has appeared in nine games for the Eagles and caught 46 passes for 527 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 12 tight end out of 70 qualifying players.

Johnson, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Eagles back in 2013. He had one year remaining on his four-year, $19.853 million rookie contract when the Eagles elected to sign him to a five-year extension worth $56.26 million that can max out at $60.01 million based on Pro Bowl escalators back in 2016. 

Johnson is set to make base salaries of $8.835 million
and $8.315 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2019, Johnson has started all nine games for the Eagles at right tackle. He’s rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 3 offensive tackle out of 75 qualifying players. 

Jenkins, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Saints back in 2009. He spent five years in New Orleans before signing on with the Eagles in 2014.

Jenkins is in the fourth year of his five-year, $40.5 million contract that included $21 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $8.25 million (2019), and $7.75 million (2020) over the remainder of the agreement.

In 2019, Jenkins has appeared in nine games for the Eagles and recorded 39 tackles, half a sack, two forced fumbles and three pass defenses.
