Eagles lock up WR DeVonta Smith through 2028 season

The Philadelphia Eagles made a long-term commitment to wide receiver DeVonta Smith on Monday.

The team exercised his fifth-year option and agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension through 2028.

Smith’s option for 2025 is worth $15.6 million and NFL Network reported the extension is for $75 million, with $51 million guaranteed.

Smith, 25, has tallied 240 catches for 3,178 yards and 19 touchdowns in 50 games (49 starts) since being drafted 10th overall in 2021 out of Alabama, where he won the Heisman Trophy in 2020.

He set a career high with 95 catches in 2022 and posted his second straight 1,000-yard season with 1,066 in 2023.

The $25 million average annual value of Smith’s extension equals fellow Philadelphia wideout A.J. Brown’s deal and trails only the Miami Dolphins’ Tyreek Hill ($30 million), the Las Vegas Raiders’ Davante Adams ($28 million) and the Los Angeles Rams’ Cooper Kupp ($26.7 million).

The Eagles signed offensive linemen Landon Dickerson (four years, $84 million) and Jordan Mailata (three years, $66 million) to long-term deals earlier this offseason.
