Alshon Jeffery, Eagles Agree to 4-Year Contract Extension

In a season that's seen the Eagles' rebuilding efforts rocket them into the Super Bowl conversation, Jeffery has arguably been one of the most important players.

On Saturday, the Eagles awarded him for his efforts with a massive contract extension.

On the season, Jeffery ranks second on the team in receptions (43) and receiving yards (619).

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 decision to sign Jeffery is a big one for the Eagles, with plenty of positives - but also some risks as well. "Like I said the other day, I love it here", Jeffery said. Everyone has welcomed me with open arms and now I'm looking forward to being here for a long time. Tight end Zach Ertz and wide receiver, Nelson Agholor are both having career-high season's.

The wideout has signed a four-year, $52 million extension with more than half his salary in guaranteed money. "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".

The 27-year-old receiver expressed his interest in staying in Philadelphia when talking to media members last week.

The ability to convince top-tier talent to sign low-priced, short-term deals will be even more important once the Eagles have to budget for the cost of an elite franchise quarterback - as they will sometime around 2020.

The 10-1 Eagles have the best record in the National Football League heading Sunday night's game at the Seattle Seahawks.
