NFC East news: Eagles lock down DeVonta Smith, Daniel Jones remains focused despite draft rumors

Philadelphia knows it’s smarter to get a deal done as soon as possible.

Wide receiver DeVonta Smith won’t need to play out his fifth-year option to convince the Philadelphia Eagles to keep him beyond 2024.

The former 2021 first-round selection agreed to a three-year, $75 million extension with the Eagles, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Monday. Smith’s deal includes $51 million in guaranteed money, per Rapoport.

The team later announced the signing.

Smith arrived in Philadelphia as a highly touted star from Alabama, where he’d won two national titles and closed his collegiate career by earning the Heisman Trophy and a unanimous All-American selection.
