Eagles sign Alshon Jeffery to a four-year extension

"First of all I just want to thank Jeffrey Lurie and the entire Eagles organization", Jeffery said. The deal announced Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, is reportedly worth $52 million, with $27 million guaranteed. There are also some incentives as well that can increase that total number.

Alshon Jeffery took a major bet on himself by signing a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles and that bet has paid off. Five of those touchdowns have come during the past four games. And Jeffery, in his first season with Philly, has 619 yards on 43 receptions-with seven touchdowns.

That 7th touchdown reception on Sunday triggered a $250,000 payday and he could earn an additional $250,000 a piece with his 9th and 11th touchdowns.

The Eagles shared a photo of Jeffery signing his new contract on their official Twitter account.

"I love it here", Jeffery said in a statement issued by the team.

Players are looking at this Eagles team and the opportunity to play with a budding star such as Wentz and signing on the dotted line when they can. "We are excited about his future here". Zach Ertz, Jeffery, and Nelson Agholor have been the top three receivers this season, and all three are under contract next season. Philadelphia is making the most of having their quarterback carrying such a low cap-hit; they recently gave defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan a contract extension and are slated to do the same with Brandon Graham and Nigel Bradham.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia (10-1) owns the best record in the National Football League and could become the first team to clinch a playoff berth Sunday with a road victory over the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field.
