  • Philadelphia Eagles extend LT Jordan Mailata, sign CB Avonte Maddox

    The Philadelphia Eagles' busy offseason continued Thursday as the team extended starting left tackle Jordan Mailata and brought back slot cornerback Avonte Maddox on a one-year deal. The Eagles agreed to terms with Mailata on a three-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2028 season. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the three-year deal is worth $66 million, including $48 million guaranteed. The $22 million-per-year average only puts Mailata behind Laremy Tunsil, Trent Williams and Andrew Thomas as the highest-paid tackles in the NFL.

    It's the right fit, after all, for a player who has totaled 245 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, 31 pass deflections, four interceptions, three sacks, eight forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery in 64 career games (38 starts). Since being drafted in the fourth round out of the University of Pittsburgh, he's also played in seven playoff games with the team. Maddox has battled injuries the past two seasons. The 2022 trip to Super Bowl LVII was hampered by a foot injury that Maddox rehabbed well enough to play in the tough loss to Kansas City, and then in 2023 Maddox tore a pectoral muscle in Week 2 of the season.
