The Philadelphia Eagles’ intention to return to the Super Bowl is serious, as evidenced via the front office’s efforts to continue the roster that took them to Super Bowl LVII.

Those include broad receiver DeVonta Smith, who just signed a three-year contract extension.

Smith was an vital piece in the Eagles attaining the title game in the 2022 season.

That year, the Alabama Crimson Tide product contributed 1,196 yards and seven touchdowns on 95 catches in the normal season, plus 197 yards, one touchdown, and 15 receptions in the playoffs.

Smith’s new contract

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport mentioned that Philadelphia exercised the fifth-year alternative on Smith’s rookie contract and gave him a three-year extension. In this way, Smith will be on the group at least till 2028.

Reports point out that the team will pay the broad receiver $75 million for the three-year extension, with $51 million guaranteed. This is introduced to the fifth-year alternative salary, bringing the player’s total income for these 4 years to $90.5 million, with an average annual salary of $25 million.

The new contract places Smith on par with fellow Eagles receiver A.J. Brown.

Both are tied for the fourth highest-paid receivers in the NFL, trailing only Tyreek Hill of the Miami Dolphins, Davante Adams (Las Vegas Raiders), and Cooper Kupp (Los Angeles Rams).
