Eagles sign LT Jordan Mailata to 4-year extension

The Philadelphia Eagles signed left tackle Jordan Mailata to a four-year contract extension Saturday with multiple outlets reporting the deal is valued at $64 million.

The contract for the 6-foot-8, 365-pounder is reportedly worth $40.85 million guaranteed, while it could reach up to $80 million with incentives.

“Excited to be here for another four years representing this team and city,” Mailata said in a video posted to Twitter. “I can’t wait to keep representing my family, and everything I have in me, give it to you guys to get this championship (this) year. Remember, go Birds baby.”

The 24-year-old native of Australia, who grew up playing rugby, had no high school or college experience when he was drafted in the seventh round by the Eagles in 2018. He attracted NFL attention from clips of his rugby exploits.

Mailata did not play in a game in 2018 with his season ultimately cut short by a back injury. A back issue also kept him out of the entire 2019 season. He finally made his NFL debut in 2020 and made his first start in Week 4 of last season, eventually starting 10 of his first 15 games.

The Eagles open the season Sunday against the host Atlanta Falcons.
