Eagles sign WR Alshon Jeffery to 4-year, $52 million contract extension

Alson Jeffery

The positives, however, are clear, as Jeffery has caught five touchdowns in his last four games, and is really starting to look like the top receiver the Eagles have been looking for over the last few seasons. "We are excited about his future here". I'm blessed to have the opportunity to play for this organization and for these fans.

He registered just 24 catches for 367 yards and three scores during is rookie campaign, but the following year, the 6-foot-4, 230-pounder broke out, hauling in 89 receptions for 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns en route to his first and only Pro Bowl appearance. Those 43 receptions have turned into 619 yards and seven touchdowns, putting him on pace to beat his career high in touchdowns (10), and close to his career high in receptions (89).

Even when there were questions why the Eagles would sign players such as Jeffery to one-year contracts this offseason, owner Jeffrey Lurie said the Eagles wanted "optionality" - as Sam Hinkie once said - to balance the short-term and long-term interests. "We are excited about his future here".

He also hinted toward a breakout season for quarterback Carson Wentz, saying: "My job is to help him win MVP". Jeffery ranks 16th in the National Football League in receiving yards and is tied for fifth in touchdowns. The 27-year-old's guaranteed money is the eighth-most for a wide receiver, passing Emanuel Sanders and sitting directly behind T.Y. Hilton.
