The Eagles have been busy locking up some of their young players in recent weeks including LT Jordan Mailata, who agreed to a four-year extension through 2025.
Sweat, 24, is a former fourth-round pick by the Eagles in the 2018 NFL Draft out of Florida State. He’s in the final year of his four-year, $3.05 million rookie contract and was set to earn a base salary of $920,000 for the 2021 season.
Sweat would have been an unrestricted free agent in 2022.
In 2021, Sweat has appeared in one game for the Eagles and recorded six tackles and no sacks.
