Eagles CB Avonte Maddox agrees to three-year extension

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Avonte Maddox on Saturday agreed to a three-year contract extension that runs through the 2024 season.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the team, however multiple media outlets reported it was worth $22.5 million and included $13.3 million guaranteed.

The move comes one day after Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert agreed to a four-year contract extension through the 2025 season.

“We put a lot on his plate. And he has a lot to process and think about. And we put him in that spot as a slot nickel corner,” Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon said of Maddox earlier this week. “He wears a lot of hats. He’s in the run game, he’s covering man-to-man. He’s in zone. He’s got a pattern match. He makes a lot of adjustments.

“So, I mean, I like where Avonte is. I like where he’s going. And he’s doing a really good job for us playing winning football in that spot, which you need in that spot.”

Maddox, 25, has recorded a career-high 48 tackles to go along with one interception and a half-sack in 10 games this season.

He has 170 tackles, three interceptions and two sacks in 45 career games (25 starts) since being selected by Philadelphia in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Eagles, TE Dallas Goedert reach 4-year contract agreement

The Philadelphia Eagles and tight end Dallas Goedert have agreed on a four-year contract extension through the 2025 season.

The team announced the agreement but did not release the contract value. NFL Network said the contract is worth $57 million, while ESPN pegged it at $59 million. At either amount, it will put Goedert among the top three tight ends in pay on an average value-per-year basis.

George Kittle of the San Francisco 49ers earns an average of $15 million a year, and Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs makes $14.31 million, per Spotrac.

Goedert, 26, was scheduled to become a free agent at the conclusion of the 2021 league year.

The Eagles selected Goedert in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft with the 49th overall draft pick. He has played 51 games (34 starts) for Philadelphia with 166 catches for 1,894 yards with 14 touchdowns.

In nine games (eight starts) this season, Goedert has 29 catches for 429 yards with two touchdowns.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (concussion) limited in practice

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert was a limited participant in his return to practice on Thursday.

Goedert did not participate in the walkthrough on Wednesday, three days after sustaining a concussion in Philadelphia’s 30-13 victory over the Denver Broncos.

Goedert, 26, had two receptions for 28 yards before exiting that game for the Eagles (4-6), who host the New Orleans Saints (5-4) on Sunday.

Tight ends Jack Stoll and Tyree Jackson would be in line for a larger workload should Goedert be unable to play against the Saints.

Goedert has 29 catches for 429 yards and two touchdowns in nine games this season. He has 166 receptions for 1,894 yards with 14 touchdowns in 51 career games since being selected by Philadelphia in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Eagles’ Lane Johnson, Dallas Goedert to play vs. Raiders

Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson and tight end Dallas Goedert will return to play in Sunday’s road game versus the Las Vegas Raiders.

“He had a good week of practice and we’ll be expecting him to play and start at right tackle,” coach Nick Sirianni said Friday of Johnson, who has been sidelined while addressing his mental health.

Johnson, 31, last took the field in the Eagles’ 41-21 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 27.

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Johnson has started all 102 games in which he has played since joining the Eagles in 2013.

Also on Friday, Sirianni said he looks “forward to Dallas playing a big role this weekend.”

Goedert was activated from the reserve/COVID list on Thursday morning.

“Conditioning-wise, whatever it is, I can be out there the whole game,” Goedert said Friday. “Running out there and practicing today, I felt really good.”

Goedert has 15 catches for 216 yards and two touchdowns in five games this season, raising his four-year career totals with Philadelphia to 152 receptions for 1,681 yards and 14 scores in 47 games.

Philadelphia drafted Goedert in the second round (49th overall) in 2018 out of South Dakota State.

Goedert is expected to receive the majority of the team’s snaps among tight ends after the Eagles traded veteran Zach Ertz to the Arizona Cardinals last Friday.

Eagles activate TE Goedert, WR Reagor

The Philadelphia Eagles activated tight end Dallas Goedert, wide receiver Jalen Reagor and three others in advance of Sunday night’s divisional matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.

Also activated were tackle Jason Peters, safety Rudy Ford and linebacker T.J. Edwards, the team announced Saturday.

The return of Goedert and Reagor will give quarterback Carson Wentz some much-needed weapons. On the season, Wentz has completed just 58.6 percent of his passes, with 10 touchdowns and a league-leading 10 interceptions.

Goedert fractured an ankle in the Eagles’ 23-23 tie with the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 27. He was placed on injured reserve two days later.

Reagor, a first-round draft pick in April, sustained torn thumb ligaments in Week 2 and was expected to be sidelined for six or seven weeks, but he returned to practice this week and participated without incident.

Tight end Zach Ertz, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, remains on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

Goedert has 13 receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown on the season. Reagor caught five passes for 96 yards in the first two games.

Peters, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, went on IR on Oct. 3 with a toe injury. His return will give a boost to an offensive line that has seen Wentz sacked 28 times.

The Eagles (2-4-1) lead the struggling NFC East. The Cowboys and Washington Football Team are 2-5, with the New York Giants in last place at 1-6.

Eagles TE Goedert (ankle) to practice

The Philadelphia Eagles designated tight end Dallas Goedert to return from injured reserve on Wednesday.

The move activates a 21-day practice window for Goedert, who fractured his ankle in the Eagles’ 23-23 tie with the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 27. He was placed on injured reserve two days later.

The potential return of Goedert would be welcomed by an offense without three-time Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz. Ertz is on injured reserve, sidelined by an ankle injury of his own.

Goedert has 13 receptions for 138 yards and one touchdown in three games this season for the Eagles (2-4-1), who host the Dallas Cowboys (2-5) on Sunday.

Goedert has recorded 104 catches for 1,079 yards and 10 touchdowns in 34 career games since being selected by Philadelphia in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Report: Eagles TE Ertz (ankle) out 4-6 weeks

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is expected to miss four to six weeks with an ankle injury, the NFL Network reported on Thursday morning.

Ertz, 29, sustained the injury during Philadelphia’s 30-28 setback to Baltimore on Sunday. The Eagles placed Ertz on injured reserve.

The team also activated offensive lineman Matt Pryor from the Reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of their Thursday night home game against the New York Giants (1-5). Pryor has started three games this season.

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Ertz has recorded 24 receptions for 178 yards and a touchdown in six games this season. His average of 7.4 yards per catch serves as a career low.

Ertz has 549 receptions for 5,921 yards with 36 touchdowns in 112 career games since being selected by the Eagles in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Richard Rodgers presumably will serve as the lead tight end for the Eagles (1-4-1) in their game against the Giants.

Dallas Goedert likely would take over that role when he returns from injured reserve, however.

The Eagles also signed offensive lineman Jamon Brown to the practice squad, one day after cutting him. The Eagles then elevated Brown and defensive tackle T.Y. McGill to the active roster for Thursday’s game. They’ll return to the practice squad immediately after the game.

Eagles take another hit: TE Goedert has ankle fracture

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert joined the list of the team’s injured contributors and is out indefinitely with a fractured ankle.

“Losing a guy like Dallas that has a huge role in protections [and the] run game, but he’s a playmaker with the ball in his hands and down the field. He’s a big part of our game plan every week, and so losing him, we obviously had to make some adjustments on the fly, [which] makes it tough,” coach Doug Pederson said.

Goedert left Sunday’s game, a 23-23 tie with the Cincinnati Bengals, in the first quarter and didn’t return.

He has a team-leading 13 receptions for 138 yards and one touchdown.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor (thumb) are also hurt. Pederson said Monday that Jackson is day-to-day.
