Eagles sign WR Alshon Jeffery to 4-year, $52M extension

Five of those touchdowns have come during the past four games.

"Alshon has been a tremendous addition to this organization on and off the field", the Eagles said in a team statement. It was announced on Saturday morning that the Eagles would be extending veteran wide receiver, Alshon Jeffery.

Teammates and future free agents alike will be encouraged by the franchise making good with players who worked their tails off to help the team get where they are today.

JAY-Z leads with eight nominations and will face off against Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars for Record and Album of the Year . Despite the (mostly) quality major categories , the Academy did what it does best and still find a way to screw it up.

The Jeffery re-signing, mixed with all the other moves that has brought the Birds back to prominence makes Howie Roseman the sure-fire frontrunner for Executive of the Year. I'm blessed to have the opportunity to play for this organization and for these fans. He finished with 52 receptions for 821 yards and two touchdowns over 12 games. "We are excited about his future here". That includes high-profile players such as Wentz, Jeffery, Ertz, Fletcher Cox, Lane Johnson, Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod, Brandon Brooks, Derek Barnett, Vinny Curry, Jason Kelce, and Sidney Jones. Over those contests, Jeffery racked up 54 catches for 807 yards while finding the end zone four times.

Jeffery was signed in March by the Eagles on a one-year, $14 million contract to become Wentz's primary target and a big weapon in the QB's second season as starting quarterback.

The ability to convince top-tier talent to sign cheap, 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.
