The deal is worth $52 million and includes $1 million per year in incentives and $27 million in guarantees, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Alshon Jeffery has been one off the most dependable receivers for the Philadelphia Eagles this season.

Through 11 games this season, Jeffery has caught 43 passes for 619 yards and seven touchdowns, leading Philadelphia wideouts in all three categories. He's also notched seven touchdowns, five of which have come in the Eagles' last four games. 1 receiver, requiring attention from defenses that's helping the other offensive weapons. Jeffery ranks 16th in the National Football League in receiving yards and is tied for fifth in touchdowns. Jeffery traveled to North Dakota during the summer to work out with Wentz and has encouraged the spread-the-ball-around approach that Wentz favors. On Saturday morning, the Eagles announced that Alshon Jeffery won't be going anywhere else anytime soon.

"I love it here", Jeffery said in a statement issued by the team. Everyone has welcomed me with open arms and now I'm looking forward to being here for a long time. "We are excited about his future here". He is tied with tight end Zach Ertz for the most receiving scores on the Eagles.

This is the second contract extension Howie Roseman and the front office finalized this past month. Back in November, defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan would receive a four-year extension.

The Eagles, of course, are in the middle of an already wildly fantastic season.

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.

Jeffery has been a tremendous asset to the Eagles' passing attack.

The ability to convince top-tier talent to sign low-priced, 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.

It appears as though Alshon Jeffery has found a new (permanent) home.
