The Eagles signed one of their young building blocks on the defensive line to a new deal, inking Josh Sweat to a three-year extension through 2024.

Sweat was in the final year of his rookie deal.

Here’s instant analysis, takeaways, and details of the deal.

Extremely fair deal for Eagles

The Eagles get Sweat on a three-year deal worth $13.3 million per season and Howie Roseman was able to get the deal done before the pass rusher was able to have a monster 2021 season.

Derek Barnett no longer a priority?

10. Derek Barnett: $10,051,000

Depending on who you ask, the Eagles are either looking to get value in the next deal with Barnett, or they could be prepared to let the 2017 first-round pick walk altogether. For months now, the assumption was that Barnett would get the new deal.

Sweat's new deal puts him in the top-20 of all NFL pass rushers per Over The Cap, while still leaving Philadelphia flexibility for other areas.
